UCL Psychology and Language Sciences

The UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences undertakes world-leading research and teaching in mind, behaviour, and language. It brings together researchers in a range of disciplines such as cognition, neuroscience, linguistics, education, communication, medicine, health, phonetics and development.  The Division is a vibrant environment for both study and research.


Within these web pages you will discover information concerning our research themes and undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. Opportunities for graduate students to work with world-renowned researchers exist in all areas of investigation, from basic processes to applied research.

The Division offers a supportive environment including numerous specialist seminars, workshops, and guest lectures.

We are one of the top-rated centres for psychology in the country, both in teaching and research. We are first in the 2013 Guardian league table for Psychology, and in the government's official ranking of university research, the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), we emerged first ahead of Cardiff, Birmingham, and Oxford, with 75% of our research in psychology being judged to be world-leading or internationally excellent. Our research and teaching in speech, language and communication, linguistics, computer sciences, and neuroscience are also judged outstanding.
