Pathway available at Bath, Bournemouth, Bristol, Exeter and Plymouth
The Psychology Pathway in the ESRC funded South West Doctoral Training Partnership covers all areas of scientific study into the human mind and behaviour.
Students can study on the Pathway in one of five Departments or Schools of Psychology at Bath, Bristol, Bournemouth, Exeter and Plymouth, where students will benefit from the excellent research environment available to them. Current students are successfully publishing as authors in leading journals, winning grants to visit international laboratories and taking up internships with government bodies and in industry. All partners offer training in specialist research methods, and these will be open to students across the pathway and will, on occasion, be organised collaboratively by pathway partners. There is extensive capacity for teaching specialist quantitative methods for analysing large datasets. Across all Universities, students are full members of research centres or groups that support methodological and conceptual development through activities such as seminars, reading groups and open science practices.
