Why study Experimental Psychology at St Hilda’s?

Psychology is fascinating, fun and challenging. Every day you will learn something amazing! Oxford has the best psychology department in Europe and St Hilda's college admits more psychology students than any other Oxford college. This provides an immediate group of like-minded people and we hold regular social events for all St Hilda's psychology students.

Each term, there are individual progress review meetings for our students. There are weekly drop-in surgeries as well, where students are able to gain information or support on any academic or personal matter.

Psychology students at St. Hilda’s have a variety of social events available to them throughout each term. There are Psychology drinks and dinners, as well as punting during the summer.
