Welcome

We're about what makes people tick – why we are the way we are, how we develop and understand the world, what goes on deep down in our emotions, relationships and society as a whole.

We're unique: the only place where under one roof you can find a multifaceted clinical and academic approach to both psychoanalytic and Jungian studies. Our research puts us at the forefront of our field, challenging unquestioned norms and shaping professional practice. Our staff are acclaimed professors, clinicians and practitioners.

Our close relationships with the National Health Service, education, care services and professional institutions ensure our undergraduate and postgraduate courses are relevant, up-to-date and responsive to the needs of society.

So, if you're fascinated by human relationships and culture and want to dig deeper, welcome home.

What makes us unique?

  • 94% student satisfaction rate (NSS 2014)
  • 80% of our undergraduates have found graduate level study or employment
  • Ranked in the top ten in the UK for research (REF 2014)
  • Strong links with the local National Health Service, education and care services and professional institutions
