Course Overview 

 
As well as studying the work of some of the greatest psychological thinkers in history, students are encouraged to play a part in the global debate and explore their own thoughts and theories. 
 
Since the programme is structured by our faculty in the UK, our students are exposed to a more practical side of psychology and research methods.  They also have the added advantage of being able to watch videos developed by our faculty in the UK as well as skype them from time to time, this enables them to acquire essential lab skills and expertise.
 
Students build on the topics already studied to gain a sound background in all the essential areas of Psychology: cognitive, developmental and social psychology, neuropsychology and individual differences, thereby giving them a much deeper experience of investigating problems in Psychology.
 
"Our class sizes are small in number, so each student gets unique attention to build on their strengths and develop their weaknesses." Alfred Dickson, Psychology Lecturer
