Course Summary

Students undertaking a PhD in Psychology at Anglia Ruskin become part of a newly established and rapidly expanding centre of research excellence. We have world-leading staff members in each of the core areas of Psychology, with strengths in cognitive neuroscience, cognition and emotion, social psychology and health psychology.

PhD students in the School of Psychology and Sports Science have a range of state-of-the-art research laboratories and equipment at their disposal. MSc-level training in quantitative and qualitative methods is available to upgrade students’ existing research skills and additional specialist training in software and equipment will allow students to develop new research abilities.

We’ll provide comprehensive research training in areas such as academic writing and publishing, research methods, subject developments, data analysis, conference skills and presentation.
