Subject Overview

Psychology examines the mind, behaviour and experience, through both scientific research and conceptual theorising. From Freudian psychoanalysis to the latest advances in brain-scanning, Psychology addresses the question of what it is to be human through a focus on the way we think and act. Requiring both rigorous scientific method and profoundly open thought, no other subject addresses both the Sciences and the Humanities in quite the same way. We provide students with a broad and engaging introduction to the many different areas of the discipline that can be pursued at university level. From the workings of cognition to the ethics and methodology of psychological research, it leaves students with a firm understanding of the many varied strands which make up this heterogeneous subject. Whether delving into the nature of memory or examining the mainsprings of obedience and authority, students are invited to consider the fundamental questions of Psychology and encouraged to contribute their own opinions to discussion. The subject touches upon a wide range of research areas such as cognitive psychology, behaviourism, social psychology, neuroscience, bio-psychology, psychopathology and developmental psychology. If you have ever wondered how the brain works, how society influences the individual, why people obey others, how the mind develops through childhood, or what constitutes personality, this is the subject for you.

Whichever subject(s) you choose to study with us, you have a number of options in terms of how your learning experience is designed. Broadly we take three slightly different approaches depending on the needs of the student, and you should discuss your desired approach during your free advice session. Our three approaches are as follows:

  1. A pre-University course, which prepares you for university study by offering a general overview of the subject at university level, tailored to your interests
  2. Ongoing tutoring, which typically focusses on specific requirements such as an upcoming exam or additional support in a particular area
  3. A research project, which incorporates a deep dive into a particular aspect of your chosen subject as well as key skills required for university level study and an assessed presentation component at the end of the course. For this option, students must choose a tuition package and also a research project ‘add-on.’

Please let your personal adviser know your preferences during your advice session and they will be delighted to put together a bespoke package for you.

Remember: You can study more than one subject with us and many of our students do exactly that.

Research Project (5 hours)

Students choosing our research project must first choose an academic bundle of 10, 20 or 40 hours in their chosen subject and then also select the research project add-on. Your tutor will work with you to design a project as the focus of your academic tuition. The research project add-on comprises sessions specifically focussed on the skills you will need to hone at university level as well as preparing you for a formal presentation, which you will make to an independent academic at the end of your course. Following your presentation you will receive a research project certificate and report from your course tutor.

Exam and Interview Prep (5 hours)

Do you have a very particular goal in mind? An exam or set of exams that you are focussed upon or a particular interview or set of interviews that you would like to prepare for? Our exam and interview prep classes are designed to do two things. The first is to ensure you have the key skills to succeed: revision techniques and exam preparation for example or public speaking and presentation skills. The second is to pair that skillset with the particular knowledge that will be relevant in the exam(s) or interview(s) you are targeting. And that is where our bespoke packages come into their own - you will be paired with tutors that have both particular subject knowledge as well as the skills you will require to succeed.

Study Skills (5 hours)

What does it take to succeed in university and in life? How can you take care of yourself, emotionally and psychologically, while doing your best every step of the way? Complement your passion for learning with concrete skills to help you thrive and succeed, through sessions covering everything from revision techniques and exam preparation, to essay writing, interview skills and more.

Leadership Skills (5 hours)

What does it take to be a young leader and global citizen in today's world? In a world as bustling and busy as ours is today, stepping up to make a difference can be a daunting task. Through this online course, students consider questions of leadership, youth involvement, the role of the internet and social media in 21st-century leadership, global vs. local engagement, and how leadership can be used to make the world a better, kinder place. In parallel to these theoretical discussions, students are challenged to consider the most important issues facing the world today and to develop their own forms of leadership. Workshops on public speaking, presentation skills, interview skills, exam and revision help, academic writing, and more, will reinforce leadership discipline and ideals and help tomorrow’s young leaders to achieve their goals!
