Why study psychology at Goldsmiths?

We’re eclectic

We offer the British Psychology Society accredited courses – so you’re on the road to a professional qualification by the time you graduate – but you can also choose from diverse options including cognitive neuroscience and anomalistic psychology so you graduate with an ‘intellectually stimulating’ degree (National Student Survey 2011).

We’re hands-on and on hand

You’ll train in psychology’s core research methods, design your own studies, carry out statistical analyses and learn how to promote your knowledge in public, but you’ll also get support across all these areas through one-to-one mentoring, small group and lab sessions. Plus there’s a dedicated technical team to help you make use of our on-site facilities.

We’re out in the world

From how sound sells brands to bullying in schools, we investigate and conduct research in a range of sectors and industries so you’ll see how psychological research informs and influences the world outside – whether it’s an advertising agency, a bank or the BBC. And from the first term you’ll be thinking about how to apply your skills in practice.
