School of Psychology

School of Psychology

Established as a department in 1930, the School of Psychology at UWA has always led the way in Australia in both the academic and professional fields. We have a proud record of turning out first-rate scientists and practitioners, widely educated in the theory, research and practice of the discipline. UWA is one of only five Australian universities to earn the highest rating of five for the Psychology field of research in the recent national Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation. This ranking reflects the quality of the Psychology staff, our strong undergraduate and postgraduate programs, the School’s capacity to attract substantial research grant funding and the high citation rates of our publications.
