Project Description

Psychology

If you are interested in people, their behaviours and motivations, and how they think and act in a range of situations, then our Psychology course will provide you with an introduction to this fascinating field. Psychology opens doors to our understanding of how people act and interact, and how psychological theories impact not only society and mental health, but also the worlds of business, law, design, education, social research, marketing and communications, and many more.

As part of our Psychology course, you will explore the theories and practices of psychology, learning about the methods used in psychological research, including techniques such as observation, case studies, psychometric tests, surveys and experiments. You will learn how this understanding influences the world at large.

This course will enable you to progress to a wide range of Higher Education options, including degrees in Applied Psychology and will introduce you to the possibility of people-centred careers such as counselling, therapy, behavioural studies and business management amongst many options.
