Course description 


Take an exciting journey through the most diverse of sciences. Discover Psychology not as a motley collection of theories, but as a powerful science that aims to improve people's lives.


The course is every Wednesday (6-8:30pm): 2.5 hours per session, with 2-hour sessions given by leading experts, and 30 minutes Q&A and informal discussions over a drink – allowing for participants to also socialise with each other.

This 10-week course is designed for anyone interested in Psychology. As psychology is related to all areas of life, this course is relevant to different contexts, including studying psychology as a scientific discipline, interacting with people, understanding self and others, and much more.

During this course we will explore questions such as: Why do people think and behave differently from each other? How do we develop? Why do cultures differ and how do they shape our perception and behaviour? What makes humans so different from other species? How does our brain cope with the vast amounts of information we process? How to use psychology to run successful business? How can growing psychological knowledge help us to lead healthier and happier lives?

This interactive course in Psychology is taught in small groups. Each week will explore different psychological topics, including memory, attention and consciousness; leadership, obedience and conformity; human brain and the mind; psychological wellbeing and disorders; relationships; and how to critically evaluate the vast amount of information we receive.


The course will also be tailored to the interests of participants – you will be able to ask questions and discuss other topics during the weekly Q&A sessions.


Tutoring

The course is taught by psychologists conducting cutting-edge research in specific areas of psychology.  For example, our tutors have leading expertise in relationships, sleep, education, creativity, the brain and the mind, psychology in the legal context, psychopathology and wellbeing.
