About the Psychology – Advanced Certificate

One step up from the psychology certificate, this qualification promises to provide students with an even more in-depth insight into the workings of the human mind. Students will begin by studying the different approaches to psychology. They will then move on to learn about everything from obedience and social influence to moral development and emotional behaviours.

On top of this, students will also develop knowledge of the practical elements of psychology. Modules on research methods, research issues and data analysis will help our learners to understand how psychological studies are conducted and evaluated. This online course is approximately 140 hours long, but our learners are encouraged to take all the time they need, up to a year.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for anyone with an interest in psychology. Whether you have completed the psychology course and want to broaden your understanding, or you want develop professionally in your current role, home study can help you on your way.

What happens after the course?

By the end of this course you will have a strong understanding of the fundamental aspects of psychology. If you want to be a psychologist, you may choose to embark on further study and work towards your undergraduate degree.

Alternatively, you may plan to use your new found knowledge to progress in your current position. A psychological knowledge can help you in a number of careers; especially careers which involve working with people. These include:

  • Youth worker
