Psychology Courses

Psychology is the scientific study of human and animal behaviour with the object of understanding why living beings behave as they do. Its aim is to help society by understanding individuals and groups through establishing general principles and researching specific cases.

Whilst psychological knowledge is often applied to the evaluation and treatment of mental health problems, it is also involved in understanding and solving problems in many different spheres of human activity.

For example:

  • How behaviour changes with development

  • When behaviour is instinctive or learned

  • How and why people differ

  • How people get into difficulties

  • How to help people get out of difficulties

  • Improving ways to deal with adolescents

  • Improving methods of teaching and learning

  • Matching persons with jobs and choosing suitable careers

That is why, as well as offering general psychology courses at different levels of complexity, we also have many specialist courses dealing with psychology for different spheres of life.

Below you will find our psychology courses ordered by popularity, each has a brief description. You can also sort these courses alphabetically and by the latest ones added.
