School of Psychology


In the recent Research Excellent Framework (REF 2014) the School was part of a unit of assessment (Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience) that was ranked in the top 10 in the UK for research power. All aspects of our research environment were judged to be conducive to producing research of world-leading or internationally excellent quality, in terms of its vitality and sustainability. Furthermore a large majority (80%) of the research outputs submitted were judged to be internationally excellent or of world-leading quality in terms of originality, significance and rigour.

Join our future research leaders

World-class talent, working in multidisciplinary teams and with inspiring leaders, are at the heart of capturing new ideas and translating these into world-changing solutions.

As a research-led institution, the University of Nottingham recognises the value and contribution of early career researchers in delivering its ambitious, high-quality research vision. In order to enhance this vital aspect of our research network we will recruit 100 Nottingham Research and Anne McLaren Fellows by the end of 2020.
