The University of Warwick, a member of the Russell Group, is one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities, recognised for its innovative research and teaching excellence, and close ties to business and industry. It has 29 academic departments at four faculties that host 2,400 academic staff and 26,000 students. The quality and impact of our research ranks us as the 7th multifaculty institution in the UK, with four of our departments being recognised as the leading academic department for research publications in the country. Our graduates are the most often targeted by the UK’s top graduate employers compared with other university graduates in the country (Graduate Market 2017) and we are ranked in the top 20 in the world for employer reputation (QS World University Rankings 2016/17). We are strongly committed to enhancing access to higher education for all those who aspire to study at university, regardless of their background.

The Department of Psychology was ranked as 7th out of more than 80 psychology departments in the country for research outputs in the REF 2014. The three departmental cross-disciplinary groups—the Behavioural Science Group, the Lifespan Health & Wellbeing Group and the Language and Learning Group—are known for their research excellence. The Lifespan Health and Wellbeing Group, led by Professor Dieter Wolke, focuses on processes and mechanisms that underlie health and wellbeing across the lifespan. The group’s researchers are from a variety of backgrounds including longitudinal epidemiology and experimental psychology, and translate findings from basic research into clinical practice, influencing health policy in the UK and worldwide. The group works closely with the Division of Mental Health and Wellbeing at the Warwick Clinical Trial Unit and The Departments of Statistics and Mathematics.
