About Us

Psychology is an experimental science that is concerned with the explanation of human and animal behaviour. It is a broad and rapidly-growing biological discipline, and Psychology at Newcastle reflects this breadth and rapid growth.

Our undergraduate course in single honours Psychology and range of joint and combined honours courses are in high demand - places are taken quickly - so make sure you apply in good time! We also warmly welcome applications from graduates wishing to join one of our many postgraduate programmes.

Psychology is based in the heart of the University campus, which is close to the city and all it has to offer. Please see our pages on finding us for more information. Our work contributes to the consistent success of subjects such as medicine, dentistry and life sciences in the UK and international league tables.
