Congratulations on securing your place to study psychology at Manchester! We're delighted that you've chosen us for the next step in your studies.

We know you'll have lots of questions about preparing for your studies and what will happen once the semester starts. You can find information relating to your level of study at the links below.

Welcome message from the Head of School

My name is Professor Kay Marshall and I have the privilege of being the Head of the School of Health Sciences in which your home Division of Psychology and Mental Health sits. The University is constituted of nine Schools spread across three Faculties and, of course, Health Sciences is the best School!

To make a difference and achieve our goals, we need great staff and students – so I am delighted that you have chosen to study with us, and I hope that when you gain your qualification you will join our long line of distinguished Manchester alumni.

Research-driven teaching is important in pushing our disciplines forward, as well as helping us solve problems and challenges. The quality and breadth of the research in your Division is outstanding and in the last academic year we had many successes to celebrate, for example, a £6.3 million award for research into digital markers to predict psychosis relapse. The sum of the whole in Psychology is certainly greater than all of its constituent parts and the team who will be teaching you work across the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health and beyond.

I do hope you have an excellent learning experience at The University of Manchester and that you enjoy your time with us and make the most of everything the University and city has to offer. So a very warm welcome to our community and we are all looking forward to seeing you on campus in the near future.

With best wishes,

Kay Marshall
Vice-Dean, Head of the School of Health Sciences
