Research in Psychology at the University of Leicester


The School of Psychology aims to undertake internationally leading research within the broad areas of cognition, neuroscience, vision and social psychology. We have an interdisciplinary research approach in which both fundamental and applied research questions are investigated.

As part of the College of Life Sciences, our research benefits from extensive collaborations with basic scientists, epidemiologists, health psychologists, ophthalmologists, and clinical practitioners. In addition we work with a significant number of government, public sector and industry partners including education providers, services allied to health and the legal system.

Our overarching research aim is to promote active research collaborations at both a national and international level.  The members of the School of Psychology are actively researching in multiple areas and are predominantly affiliated with the Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour.  Please see this link for further details.

Please note that the School of Psychology has now become part of the new, larger, Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour and these pages are currently under review.
