Course content

The Psychology for Graduates (by Distance Learning) is an excellent introductory course for those who would like to work in applied areas of professional psychology such as counselling, clinical, educational, forensic, health, occupational and sports psychology.

This 60 credit course is aimed at those who have insufficient or no prior study of psychology at degree level. Once you've successfully completed the course you'll be able to gain entry on to our Psychology MSc course which, if completed successfully, confers graduate membership and the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

In the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of all 2017 graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

The Psychology for Graduates course aims to develop your knowledge of a broad range of areas and approaches in psychology. Delivered via our virtual learning platform (WebLearn), you’ll be able to view lecture material and utilise self-test material to mark your progress on the course.

You’ll gain skills in research methods and statistical analyses, and use this expertise to produce reports in the format used in psychological journals.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to describe theories and models of biological psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, individual differences, and social psychology, and have an understanding of the historical development of these theories.
