Welcome to the Department of Psychology

On behalf of all your lecturers and support team I would like to warmly welcome you to your academic home; the Department of Psychology at Roehampton. You are joining a department that offers student-focused teaching by a committed group of academic staff. Our aim is to provide an excellent education by working with you in a partnership to develop your knowledge and skills for success.

The Department is a dynamic and diverse community, offering programmes in psychology as well as therapeutic training - we pride ourselves on embedding teaching with research and/or practice. You will be given opportunities to select modules in your final year which may lead to specialist career paths in psychology. At every opportunity we will encourage you to be an independent learner, reflective thinker and a skilled researcher. I hope you will also take advantage of all the varied events, workshops, seminars and student led societies we have on offer.

It is a privilege to be head of this department and work with fantastic colleagues that share a common purpose of working with our students.

I very much look forward to meeting you all in September and teaching you throughout your degree programme.

Best wishes, 

Janek Dubowski
Acting Head of Department, Psychology
