Doctoral Studies

The third-cycle programme at the Department of Psychology leads up to a degree of Doctor of Philosophy with a programme length of, usually, four years. The programme focuses on fundamental psychological principles and processes that help us to better understand and predict human behaviour in different contexts, and during different phases of life.
