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 in psychology 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.

 

Develop the skills and expertise required to work in psychology, including how to conduct research and present data effectively. The Applying Psychology module will enable you to fine-tune your career path and chart your professional development to chartered psychologist status. You will have access to various course-specific software packages such as Qualtrics, which will enable you to conduct experiments and capture data remotely.

Although this is a distance learning course, you will be able to use our dedicated lab facilities should you need to when working on your dissertation. This course offers the opportunity to study for a qualification that might otherwise not be possible because of your location, work or family commitments.

While other distance learning courses might require you to be on campus once a week, this course only requires your attendance for a one-week residential, where you will develop your support networks, share knowledge with your peers and demonstrate your communication skills. The flexible nature of this course means you can also slow the pace of your learning to fit with your other commitments, although you will have to complete the course within six years.

Because this is a distance learning course, you will not be charged our standard international student fees if you are from outside the EU.
