Graduate School

Programmes in Experimental Psychology and Psychiatry offer opportunities to research social, cognitive and emotional psychological processes in both health and in mental disorders.

Oxford has particular strengths in developmental psychology and disorders, language and communication, action selection and decision-making, attention and cognition, and research into psychological illnesses including depression and bipolar disorder, psychoses and its features, anxiety and trauma.  The range of opportunities encompasses laboratory methods with the range of techniques offered by contemporary cognitive neuroscience including imaging, brain stimulation, neuropsychology, psychopharmacology and genetics.

Strong ties between Experimental Psychology and Psychiatry in Oxford facilitate opportunties to work on translational projects that apply basic research to answer questions about the mechanisms that sustain and confer risk for psychological problems (across the lifespan) and mechanisms that might allow psychological and pharmacological treatments to work. The multi-disciplinary character of this research ensures that our programmes offer rich and exciting opportunities for post-graduate scientific training.

The Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training runs a 3 year Doctoral course in Clinical Psychology that includes a substantial research programme.
