The study of psychology informs our thinking on many of the most difficult issues that our world faces.
The School of Psychology is one of the largest centres for the study of psychology in the UK. We have nearly 40 academic faculty, about 100 doctoral research students and over 100 postgraduate students taking Masters degrees. Our undergraduate intake is about 250 a year, which gives us an academic community of nearly 1000 people working in a rich and supportive learning environment.
Teaching and research
In The Independent's Complete University Guide (2010/11) Sussex University is ranked 11th in the UK to study psychology. Our programmes offer an excellent grounding in the core areas of the subject, and at the same time provide plenty of choice so that our students can pursue their own interests and develop their own specialisms.
Psychology is a diverse discipline and our size means that we span major research areas in social, cognitive, biological, developmental and clinical psychology. Psychology at Sussex was rated 12th in the UK for research in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).
