Tell us your views: proposed Certificate course in Psychology
Here at the Institute of Continuing Education we are developing a new one-year, part-time University of Cambridge Certificate course in Psychology. We would very much welcome your views on the proposed course and invite you to complete a short survey to help inform the design process.
About the course
This one-year, part-time course will provide an insight into the study of psychology, with a particular focus on how the brain enables us to see, think and remember.
It will explore evidence from the study of patients with brain damage (neuropsychology), the use of neuroimaging, and behavioural experiments. Students will learn about some of the key specialisations in different areas of the brain and how differences in the brain relate to individual differences in behaviour and cognition.
The course will be open-access, meaning that no special qualifications would be needed to apply, beyond an interest in the subject and a willingness to commit to the course. It is likely to be delivered via a blend of face-to-face teaching and self-directed online study.
It will be taught part-time at first-year undergraduate level and will give 60 credits at FHEQ level 4 on successful completion of the course. (For reference, one year of full time undergraduate study would typically be equivalent to 120 credits).
About the survey
The survey consists of nine questions and will only take you a few minutes to complete.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
