Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


About our courses

Psychology as a discipline covers an extremely wide range of topics, but can be simply described as the scientific study of mind and behaviour.

We offer a growing range of short and part-time psychology courses, including residential weekends, summer schools and fully online courses, suitable for both newcomers to the field and those who have studied psychology previously.
