Overview

Students from the Psychology programme at Queen's University Belfast are strategically appointed to research projects with the express purpose of enhancing research capacity and development in prioritised areas for which the School aims to enhance world-leading research.

Programme content

The School of Psychology has a postgraduate research community of around 50 PhD students who are very well resourced and supported in their research.

The School has made extensive material investments in infrastructure, including two computer labs and access to several suites of dedicated research labs, to support their research.

Students are a central part of the research environment of the School and participate in School-level seminars and research meetings.

Students are expected and encouraged to publish during their PhD research and are supported in doing so through their research training.
