How will I be taught?
The course will consist of a mixture of tutor input, group activities and discussion. The emphasis will be on participation and sharing of ideas. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you would like.
At the start of the course you will be asked to fill in a form about your current knowledge and understanding of psychology. This is an introductory course, so you are not expected to bring any knowledge, but we will be interested to find out how much you have gained from the course by the end.
What do I need to bring with me?
We advise students not to purchase equipment, books or materials until after the first session of the course unless otherwise stated but a pen, paper and a folder will be helpful, along with a willingness to take part in discussions.
What can I do next?
The course would be a useful starting point for anyone considering studying Psychology at GCSE or AS level. For students wishing to go into detail on each of the disorders there are Saturday courses that cover each of the topics in more detail. Alternatively, if students wish to widen their subject knowledge there are alternative Introduction to Psychology courses available as well as Saturday courses that cover a breadth of different topics.
Your tutor will advise you on the appropriate follow-up course or visit www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
Everyone is welcome to join the course.
This forms part of the Introduction to Psychology Courses, so would be ideal for someone who is looking to continue their study of psychology. Equally this course runs as a stand alone option and can be studied without any prior knowledge of psychology.
