School of Psychology
Welcome to the School of Psychology at the University of Buckingham. We are delighted to boost 95% student satisfaction in NSS (National Student Survey 2020). This student satisfaction ranking is the result of final year students scoring their Student experience. Our scores show our student’s appreciation of how well we have transitioned from in-person teaching, to remote access and on to a mixed offering of online lectures and in-person tutorials.
Psychology is the study of human behaviour and mental processes. Psychology scientifically investigates how thoughts, feelings and motivations influence how people act and interact with others.
