A welcoming student environment

We understand that our students thrive when they’re happy and settled. We also know that, for many, studying at university may be the first time you've lived away from home (or even in the UK).

To help you settle in, we offer all our students a welcoming and supportive environment. From our School's very own student society to the University Student Union, there's a wide range of clubs and societies to support both your social life and your wellbeing. 

As an undergraduate in the School of Psychology, you'll be taught by experts in their field and develop your skills in a friendly and encouraging environment.

Learning through cutting-edge research

As a psychology student, you'll learn through a combination of teaching and engagement shaped by our School's latest research findings.

While studying with us, you'll have the opportunity to use our first-rate facilities to build your experience and gain insight into the latest methods and approaches in the ever-changing field of psychology.

You'll also develop your understanding of psychology at a prestigious Russell Group university, and be part of one of the largest research-based institutions in the UK. We provide world-leading, original research with outstanding impact, and this means you'll benefit from an excellent learning experience with unrivalled links to business and the public sector.

Outstanding career support

Your future is as important to us as your studies, so our career support starts from day one and continues throughout your time at Leeds. We're proud to say our approach looks to be working, with 93% of our graduates in work or further study within 15 months of their graduation (Discover Uni, 2020)

During your time with us you'll have access to one-to-one careers advice from a personal tutor and extensive guidance on how to prepare for the working world through the University's unique Leeds for Life initiative.

There's also a range of societies, work experience and volunteering programmes for you to get involved with; all great opportunities to enhance your CV.
