University of Leeds

Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and experience. The way people think and behave can have a huge impact on their state of health/illness. Understanding how and why individuals think and act as they do is fundamental to the practice of both medicine and dentistry. Although various aspects of behaviour are studied in other disciplines, a special feature of psychology is that it uses a wide range of empirical and statistical techniques for collecting and analysing information. Intercalating in Psychology will enable a much deeper understanding of human behaviour from an empirical perspective.

The School of Psychology is distinguished in both research and teaching and offers students a dynamic, challenging and inspiring learning environment. Many of our academics have strong links with the British Psychological Society and many collaborate with institutions world-wide in conducting cutting-edge research. Thus, Psychology at Leeds is always forward-moving, relevant and global.

Capitalising on our research excellence and expertise, the programme is delivered by leading researchers, knowledgeable in the latest advances in Psychology. We adopt an apprenticeship model, whereby students design and manage their own research which plugs into ongoing research in the School.
The programme is characterised by:

  • High-quality training in all aspects of research methods
  • Diverse modules taught by staff at the cutting edge of research in their field
  • Modules that fulfil the highest standards in terms of professional recognition
  • A modern, personalised learning environment that supports employability and career development
