Centre for Applied Psychology
There is a strong research culture within the Department of Psychology. Staff research activity covers many areas of psychology and this is reflected in the wide variety of projects we house in the Centre for Applied Psychological Research.
Centre for Applied Psychological Research (CAP Research)
