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.
