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?

  • 95% student satisfaction rate (NSS 2015)
  • 80% of our undergraduates have found graduate level study or employment
  • Ranked in the top 10 in the UK for research quality (REF 2014)
  • Strong links with the local National Health Service, education and care services and professional institutions

Bernard Zeitlyn lecture

What is evil

What is evil? Do we need a theory of evil? Book your place at our lecture on 21 October. Coline Covington will argue that it is precisely our difficulty in conceptualizing evil that calls for the creation of a theory of evil.

Psychoanalytic BA


What’s going on below the surface? Why are we the way we are? Our BA Psychoanalytic Studies looks at the psychological factors that influence our emotions, behaviours and relationships in daily life.
