Psychology

About the Psychology Certificate

Psychology is the study of the human mind. Psychologists spend their careers figuring out how our minds work and explaining different aspects of human behaviour. If you have ever wondered what causes depression, anxiety or aggression, and wondered why some people are prone to these feelings whilst others aren’t, an online psychology course could be the right choice for you.

When you study psychology online with learndirect, you develop a foundation knowledge of one of the most interesting academic disciplines there is. Altogether there are 23 modules to work through. These stimulating units cover everything from anxiety to gender identity and we guarantee that if you enrol, you’ll be thinking like Sigmund Freud in no time at all.

Who should study this course?

This course is a great option for people who want to gain a foundation knowledge of psychology. Whether you intend to work your way towards a psychology degree, or simply nurture your own personal interests, this distance learning course will help you achieve your goals.

As with all of our home study courses, you do not need any prior qualifications or experience in order to apply. All we as is that you have a genuine interest in psychology, access to a computer, and the drive and dedication to thrive in a home learning environment.

What happens after the course?

By the end of this course you will have a foundation knowledge in the field of psychology. This will come in useful in many areas of your life and will be a great basis for further study. If you do want to become a psychologist, you should consider studying our Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) after this course and applying for university.

Alternatively you may have enrolled on this psychology distance learning course to develop your current career or to help you find a job straight away. Psychology can come in useful in many jobs besides the role of a psychologist. These include but are not limited to:
