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 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.
We are also pleased to introduce a new evening lecture series exploring cutting edge research in psychology and neuroscience and its impact on improving education and learning. The Psychology for Educators lecture series is for anyone with an interest in psychology and neuroscience in education, particularly teachers.
