A RICH HISTORY AND EXCELLENT COMMUNITY FOR LEARNING
The School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences can trace its origins to the formation of the Department of Psychology in 1921, making it one of the oldest of its kind in the UK. Our Psychology courses have a long-standing reputation for excellence in experimental psychology which spans nearly 100 years. Our Clinical Language Sciences courses have been delivering one of the leading Speech & Language Therapy degrees (HCPC accredited) in the UK since its inception 40 years ago.
We have invested heavily in state-of-the-art research facilities including brain imaging systems (MRI, EEG, TMS), and are unique in housing four clinical research facilities on site (Autism, Anxiety & Depression, Speech & Language Therapy, and Dementia).
The School works closely with our partners in the NHS to support three on site clinics, as well as an additional independent Autism Centre. Further information on these clinics can be found below.
