Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a name that encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience: neurology, language and programming.

Achieve inner and outer well-being through the power of NLP.  Neuro-linguistic programming is a psychological approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy. In essence, it is a method of influencing the brain’s behaviour (neuro) through the use of language (linguistic) and other types of communication to enable a person to ‘recode’ the way the brain responds to stimuli (programming) – thus enabling them to develop new and better behaviour and achieve specific goals.

It is an extremely powerful concept, containing as it does some of the most accessible, positive and useful aspects of modern psychology. It has been found to be helpful in virtually every aspect of personal and interpersonal relations.

This course is about using the language of the mind to consistently achieve our specific and desired outcomes. NLP is a method of understanding how people achieve success in a wide-range of fields such as sport, education, management and therapy and is designed to give an insight into a range of techniques, enabling therapists to integrate these skills alongside their own toolbox of techniques.

On this NLP course you will:

  • Learn what NLP really is
  • Gain an insight into a range of NLP techniques
  • Improve your business relations and interpersonal skills
  • Build on your persuasion and assertiveness skills

No. While you can choose to write your assignments by hand, the majority of students type up their work in a word processor and then submit it via email to their tutors. A typed essay is much easier to save and edit and makes it easier for tutors to read.

I studied even on holiday
T. Morrison

Excellent! I have really enjoyed the course. I have referred the college to friends/colleagues. I even continued studying whilst on holiday in Switzerland.

The learning platform is great
Gillian Loveday

The whole experience has been very positive, my tutor Jennifer has been truly amazing, and student services dept. couldn’t be more helpful, I’ve learnt so much the learning platform is great, easily accessed and easy to navigate around which I was a little worried about after not studying for a horrific amount of years!

I recommend Oxbridge

Courses to help you in the real world
Lisa. M. Hart

I lost my job 2 years ago and, having no qualifications, I didn’t no what to do. I started distance learning and I haven’t looked back since! Courses to help you in the real world unlike school.

Highly rate Oxbridge
Amelia-Rose Simcock

I took this course after researching online. I got sent all the units/ assignments for all my course and I love studying on my own and away from a college or unified establishment. I study after work or in my free time, and there’s no one to  push me to finish quickly or to hold me back. If something wasn’t good, they let me do it again and help me improve it. I highly rate home learning – Oxbridge are a great example of a college who do it well, and there are a lot of bogus colleges out there.
