Welcome to the Research School of Psychology

The ANU Research School of Psychology (RSP) is one of the best places in Australia to study psychology. In 2015 we received the highest rating for our research performance (a score of 5/5) and were ranked in the top 50 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. 

We have world-leading academics right across the different areas of psychology (e.g., clinical, cognition, developmental, health, methods and statistics, neuroscience, organisational, social, perception) and serve the community through the Psychology Clinic. Students learn from experts and tackle big ideas while relating them to real-world problems. At RSP we translate research so it is impactful in policy domains and organisations, and is applied to improve people's lives. With strong links with government, business, hospitals and health practitioners your future is very bright with an ANU Psychology degree.
