What does this course cover?
This module is created to be a short course version of the type of teaching and learning you would expect to see on our BSc in Psychology, offered by the IoPPN, which is currently second in the world for psychology and psychiatry. Many of our students go on to become successful clinicians, researchers and academics. While others choose to use their skills in a variety of industries including business, technology, consultancy and the public service. This short course is designed to give you a flavor of the types of research and practice the IoPPN is world renowned for. We will cover some of the most important theories, approaches and methods to a range of clinical conditions.
