Course overview

Take an exciting journey through the most diverse of sciences. Discover Psychology not as a motley collection of theories, but as a powerful science that aims to improve people's lives. This interactive short course in Psychology is taught in small groups by psychologists conducting cutting-edge research.

Brilliant! The introduction was fantastic and fascinating to disucss lots of different areas. The EEG practical demo was really interesting. Yulia is brilliant and so interesting to listen to, talk to and discuss psychology with!

Explore psychology

During this session, we will ask questions such as: Why do people think and behave differently from each other? How do we develop? Why do cultures differ and how do they shape our perception and behaviour? What makes humans so different from other species? How does our brain cope with the vast amounts of information we process? How can growing psychological knowledge help us to lead healthier and happier lives? Do you want to ask a psychologist your own question?
