We are an open and inclusive university that is focused on transforming the lives of our students. Our corporate plan sets out an ambitious agenda for our future success which focuses on the delivery of high-quality teaching and learning and excellence in research. UEL has almost doubled its output of world-leading research in recent years and 94 per cent of the research UEL submitted to the Research Excellence Framework 2014 was deemed to be of an at least internationally-recognized level. In the last two years, we’ve risen 79 places in the National Student Survey league table, and we achieved our highest ever student satisfaction score in 2017.

Our School of Psychology is one of the largest in the UK and has an excellent record in undergraduate and postgraduate professional training. This is complimented by a strong research profile; in REF 2014 the School was one of only four submissions to secure 100% 4* rating for research impact. The School has vibrant research groups, modern equipment and laboratories including EEG, TCS (brain stimulation), virtual reality, and eye-tracking.

We are a School that drives innovation and excellence in programme development and student experience. Undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are offered on campus, via distance learning and through international partnerships.  You will help shape the future of the School and be involved in developing the postgraduate portfolio, deliver doctoral supervision, and support student learning in a designated area within the discipline.
