The ANU Research School of Psychology (RSP) is one of the best places in Australia to study psychology. In 2015 RSP received the highest rating for its research performance (a score of 5/5) and was ranked in the top 30 out of 1000s of Departments around the world. This rating is important for students because it includes measures of teaching quality, the employability of graduates and international outlook.
At RSP there are world-leading academics right across the different areas of psychology (e.g., clinical, cognition, developmental, health, methods and statistics, neuroscience, organisational, perception, social). Our students learn from experts and tackle big ideas while relating them to real-world contexts. RSP is committed to translating research so it is impactful in policy domains and organisations, and is applied to improve people's lives. RSP has strong links with government, business, hospitals and health practitioners and serves the community through the Psychology Clinic.
