Our School of Psychology brings together world-leading expertise in experimental psychology, cognitive science and cognitive neuroscience in order to advance the understanding of behaviour. If you study with us, our supportive learning environment can help you to gain an in-depth knowledge of Psychology, while developing skills that can be transferred to the workplace. Many of our staff are part of the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology, one of seven research institutes at the University of Glasgow.
