The Division of Psychology is one of the largest in the country with over 45 academic staff. With an established national presence in both its teaching and research the division has done very well in both internal and external performance tables. The QAA Subject Review confirmed this standing in May 1999 and again in 2005 rating psychology at NTU as "excellent" and commenting that:
- we provide high quality teaching, with balanced curricula
- our staff are approachable, enthusiastic and committed
- our teaching and assessment methods are imaginative and innovative
- the pastoral and learning environment is caring and supportive
- our quality management systems are robust
- staff have developed high quality research and consultancy which informs the curriculum.
All of our staff are research active and our research has an emphasis on theoretically informed applied research.
Dedicated facilities for our Psychology students
The University has invested in the Psychology division upgrading accommodation, facilities and equipment used exclusively for the provision of our psychology courses and for research. We have a modern undergraduate teaching laboratory suite and a second teaching laboratory specifically catering for postgraduate students. In addition there are specialist suites dedicated to particular areas of interest in psychology, including:
- laboratories designed to support experimental research in cognition
- dedicated facilities to support research into computer gaming and cyberpsychology
- fixed and mobile eye-tracking facilities
- a cognitive modelling and visual analysis laboratory
- whole-head EEG laboratory
- a human communication and social interaction laboratory.
Alongside these are flexible cubicles for student project work, an extensive and contemporary psychometric test bank library and dedicated technical support.
