This course aims to introduce you to psychology and the scientific exploration of the human mind and behaviour. We will explore important questions relating to how we interact with the world around us and why we behave the way we do.

We will introduce you to this incredibly diverse, rich and fascinating area through a series of interactive sessions and workshops. Specifically, you will learn how the brain works, how our minds develop, and how we socially engage with others.

This course is offered by the Department of Psychology, one of the world’s top psychology departments, excelling in both teaching and research.

You need to have at least an upper-intermediate level of English (ca. IELTS 5).
