About The Course
The Diploma in Psychological Studies programme aims to provide students with skills and knowledge in a number of key areas that can then be further developed in introductory studies in psychology. Students will be introduced to the major topics in the contemporary study of psychology and will examine psychological contributions to an applied field.
Assessment of the modules includes examinations, assignments, projects, presentations, class tests, and/or practical tests.
Mode of Delivery
Lectures, tutorials and independent learning are employed. To make sure that students have a clear understanding of the concepts, tutorials are used to re-emphasize the key areas.
