About the School

From unravelling the secrets of the ageing process to shaping tomorrow’s speech technologies, the University of Edinburgh’s School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences is at the forefront of innovation.

The School of Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences (PPLS) offers a rich environment for postgraduate study and research. Our students benefit from the close links between the three core teaching areas, as well as from our connections with other world-class research groups at the University and beyond.

In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 all three of our core areas were highly ranked. We were ranked best in the UK for linguistics, first in Scotland and second in the UK for philosophy, and first in Scotland and third in the UK for psychology.
