Study in the Department of Psychological Sciences

We are a vibrant, world-leading centre of innovative psychological research and training. Our academics work across neuroscience, cognitive development and child and family psychology.

Our students benefit from studying in a department where research provides a stimulating backdrop to our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. In the National Student Survey (NSS) 2021, psychology at Birkbeck was ranked in the top ten nationally for academic support and for assessment and feedback. In addition, over 90% of psychology students rated their teaching positively.
