The School of Psychology and Sport Science brings together two of Bangor University’s highly performing departments: Psychology, and Sport and Exercise Sciences. Our world-leading research spans cognitive neuroscience, clinical interventions, psychological wellbeing, elite performance, physical activity, health and applied human physiology, and has significant real-world impact. We are also proud of our excellence in teaching and learning which is similarly acknowledged nationally and globally. Our research-informed teaching includes a wide portfolio of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes and offers a clear and progressive ‘pathway’ model of education to enable students to travel from undergraduate studies through to the postgraduate opportunities which will make them competitive in a wide range of professional contexts (from Masters, 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.
As a School we are committed to educating future societal contributors and leaders. We are committed to promoting and enhancing equality, diversity, and inclusion within our School. We have a wonderful sense of community within the School, a genuine care for our students, and excellent opportunities for internships and work placements. The School has a 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. Together, we aim to ensure that your time at Bangor University is enjoyable and transformational. Your experience will positively influence your life and subsequently enable you to positively impact society and the life of others on completion of your studies. Whatever your interest our School offers you a supportive and welcoming environment.
