Psychological Sciences & HealthOur research

The School of Psychological Sciences & Health has a vibrant multi-disciplinary research community who works together to conduct impactful and theoretically-driven research.

The School is made up of the areas of Psychology, the Counselling Unit, Physical Activity for Health and Speech & Language Therapy. Together, we work on several cross-school research themes, including Health Behaviour Change and Ageing.

The School is a Centre for Excellence in Research. For example, in the last UK Research Excellence Framework our cross-university Allied Health Research Programme (REF 2014 Unit of Assessment 3, UoA3) was highly rated:

  • 81% of our scientific papers were rated Internationally Excellent (3*) or World-Leading (4*)
  • 100% of our impact case studies were rated as Internationally Excellent or World-Leading
  • We were 1st in Scotland and 3rd in UK for 'Research Power' (of the 91 institutions submitted to UoA3)

We work across the three themes in UoA3 at Strathclyde: Medicines, Therapies and Diagnostics; Healthcare and Data Systems; Health Behaviours and Interventions.
