The School of Human and Behavioural Sciences brings together two of Bangor University’s most highly performing and exceptional disciplines: Psychology, and Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences. Our world-leading research spans cognitive neuroscience, clinical interventions and wellbeing, elite performance and applied human physiology, and has significant real-world impact. Furthermore, our research-informed teaching includes a wide portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and offers a clear ‘pathway’ model of education to enable students to progress from undergraduate studies through to the postgraduate opportunities which will make them competitive in a wide range of professional contexts (from PhD, to DClinPsy, to a multitude of graduate careers). Our subjects are regularly ranked amongst the top ten in the UK in the National Student Satisfaction Survey, and together with our research, this ensures a vibrant learning experience with academics who have an international reputation in their specialist area.
We have a wonderful sense of community within the School, with open door policies, emergency tutor provision for our students, and excellent opportunities for internships and work placements. The School has a really cosmopolitan feel to it, with staff and students joining us from countries all across the world, ensuring that the perspectives within our programmes are representative and inclusive. Whatever your interest, our School will offer you a well-supported and welcoming environment.
