If you’re looking for answers in how the mind works, you’d better go to North America. 12 of the top 20 universities for Psychology are based in the US, while a further two are based in Canada.
As with last year, the top of the Psychology rankings is dominated by English-speaking countries. The University of Amsterdam (Netherlands) and University of Ghent (Belgium) are the only two universities in the top 40 not to come from the US, UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand.
