Follow your own interests
During the final stage of this online course, in addition to the compulsory core areas of Psychology you can also choose from a range of optional modules, allowing you to follow your own interests. These may be in areas such as Addictive Behaviours, Applied Psychology and Ergonomics or Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD.
With a choice of start dates – September, January or May – and interactive online learning materials, you have the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. Course modules still operate within a fixed trimester but you can choose to study during the day, in the evenings or at the weekend rather than having to attend fixed lectures.

Is the programme BPS accredited?
We will be resubmitting an application for accreditation for our psychology programmes to the British Psychological Society (BPS) in early 2017. Until we have successfully concluded this process we are unable to state that our programmes are BPS accredited. The BPS expects to make a decision regarding accreditation by 1 April 2017. BPS accreditation remains in place for programmes that commenced prior to September 2016 and for all campus-based psychology programmes.
