Psychology at Kent offers a supportive, dynamic and diverse environment for creative research and learning.
This is a generic research methods programme that offers advanced and broad-based training in the major methods and statistical techniques in use in psychology, together with a wide range of optional modules to allow you to tailor your studies to suit your own particular interests. You choose modules from those on offer in the more specialised Master’s programmes and undertake a project in one of the major research areas of the School.
We conduct both basic and applied research in several areas, and we are highly regarded as a leading European centre for postgraduate research. We have a long-established international reputation in social psychology, and this is complemented by our strengths in cognitive, developmental and forensic psychology. The School attracts excellent visiting scholars and postgraduate students from both within the UK and overseas. Some of our PhD students are self-funded, and others are funded by grants or awards either from the School, UK or their countries of origin. Some are also paid for doing part-time teaching within the School.
