Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) - Latest Assessment
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). Neurosciences, another discipline our school strongly focusses on was awarded a rating at this highest level as well (one of only three Universities). Psychology and Neurosciences at the Newcastle University are strong and successful fields of research.
