School research

Our research teams get encouragement and support spanning traditional School and Faculty boundaries. As a result of this we are proud to be  one  of only  four University  Psychology  institutions being officially rated as performing  "well above world standard"  (ERA rating of 5) in the 2012 Excellence in Research for Australia rankings

Neurosciences, another discipline our School  was awarded a rating at this highest level as well (one of only three universities). Psychology and neurosciences at the University of Newcastle are strong and successful fields of research.
