There are currently no places available on this course. Please register your interest and we will notify you if places become available.

Explore how we really make decisions and how our brain leads us astray- from environmental influences we don’t even notice to intrinsic biases our brain has evolved. By understanding these we can step back when it comes to really important choices in life, and avoid being caught out by the quirks of our brains, hopefully helping us make better decisions.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
