We provide a dynamic and stimulating research environment with an excellent research infrastructure that offers a range of opportunities.

The broad range of expertise within the school allows us to provide training across the breadth of psychology from cells to society, using a range of research methodologies.  The quality of our research provision is highlighted by our 2nd place ranking in the latest UK Research Excellence Framework (REF) for psychology.

We support our researchers with dedicated infrastructure, including the Tower Building, Neuroscience laboratories, Cardiff University Brain Imaging Centre (CUBRIC) and the Cardiff University Centre for Human Developmental Science (CUCHDS).

We have ongoing collaborations with several centres within Cardiff University, including Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute, Cardiff Dementia Research Institute, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research to name a few. This highlights a distinctive feature of the school, its integration of research activities across disciplines that contributes to its goal of delivering research with clear impact.
