Psychology and Psychophysiology
Understanding human behaviour starts with the brain: without it, we can’t unlock the biggest mysteries of our society.
We offer psychology and psychophysiology courses to help you enter a new world of understanding — to see how processes like attention, memory and judgment work at their most fundamental levels.
Through a cognitive science or psychophysiology degree, you’ll combine psychology with behavioural neurosciences to understand neurophysiology, and even physiological responses to sleep and brain disorders.
Using both analytical and research skills, you’ll also learn how to use biological recording technology to study cognition and behaviour.
The best part? You’ll learn how to apply your studies in whatever field you choose, in science or beyond. Browse our courses to find detailed course information, application dates, entry requirements, fees, subjects, ATAR calculator and more.
