Research lies at the heart of the School of Psychology. Our cutting-edge research aims to enhance understanding and provide innovative approaches to key psychological challenges and issues. We are engaged in research across the broad range of the discipline.
The School is organised into four research groups; Behavioural and Clinical Neuroscience, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental and Clinical Psychology and Social and Applied Psychology. Each group holds regular seminars and serves as a focus for both faculty and research students.
Psychology at Sussex was ranked 12th equal amongst the 76 submissions in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. 60% of our research was recognised as world leading or internationally excellent, and 95% was internationally recognised or better.
The School of Psychology collaborates on research with a variety of public and private organisations, see Partnerships for more details, and participates in multidisciplinary within centres of excellence such as CISC and Sackler.
