School of Psychological Sciences, University of Manchester
The School of Psychological Sciences at the University of Manchester, is one of five schools which make up the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences. The Victoria University of Manchester (VUM) was the first university in Britain to appoint a full-time Professor of Psychology in 1919. The present School was founded by the bringing together of the Human Communication and Deafness Group (HCD), the Department of Psychology and the Division of Clinical Psychology in 2004 when the University of Manchester was formed by the merger of VUM and UMIST. The school is currently divided into three divisions: Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Audiology & Deafness.
The school is also organised into five across-division research groups: Audiology & Deafness, Clinical & Health Psychology, Clinical Neuroscience & Language Disorders, Cognition & Cognitive Neuroscience, and Language & Communication.
