Course content

Better understand people and the world around you on this flexible course.

Whether you are already working in psychology, looking to forge a new career in the scientific study of people, the mind and behaviour or want to boost your prospects in any number of industries, a qualification accredited by the British Psychological Society can open up countless doors.

Requiring no prior knowledge of psychology, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of this challenging but stimulating discipline. You will explore theoretical and methodological approaches and analyse cognitive, educational, forensic, clinical and health psychology. You will learn established practical research techniques so you can observe the real world and collect and collate data effectively.

A distance learning course allows you to study from wherever you are in the world, and the flexible nature of this course means you will be able to fit your studies around your other commitments.

Rest assured, you will not be studying alone - you will take part in a week-long residential where you will work alongside your peers in workshops and experiments.

To be able to get the most from this course you will need to spend around 20 hours per week in study.
