Psychology Level 3

An understanding of Psychology can be life enhancing. Our biological, physical, cognitive, emotional and social development influences our adult aspirations, achievements and level of contentment. This course is likely to be of value to you both personally and professionally.

Psychology is both an applied and academic field that studies the human mind and behaviour. Research in Psychology seeks to understand, explain and clarify how we think, act and feel. If you’d like to embark upon one of the many careers this course can lead to this is the optimal distance learning course for you. What is really exciting and stimulating about Psychology is that it helps you understand the mind and how it influences behaviour. This will help you understand others as well as yourself.

Your mind is the most complicated and intricate piece of the universe that humans currently know about, the rules that govern it are mysterious and elusive. Maybe our brains are not complex enough to understand themselves, but that’s not going to stop us from trying! The study of the human mind has intrigued and captivated us for centuries. The brain is the most complex creation in the known universe and unpicking its inner workings can be fascinating and compelling.

Have you ever thought about why and how we remember? Well, just by asking that very question, you are beginning on the road into Psychology. Psychology Level 3 can be a useful and pragmatic addition to many other courses and jobs, giving you that extra understanding and compassion for people around you. Throughout the course, there are ‘real life’ applications of the theories, which are included to help your understanding and aid learning.

On this interactive course you will discover:

  • How scientists have studied the mind, brain and behaviour
  • How our understanding of the world develops and establishes as we grow up
  • How much we are influenced by other people
  • How our thoughts and actions are related to brain activity
  • How memory works, why we forget and how to improve your memory
  • How Psychology can be applied and practised in the real world


Study the psychology of the human mind and behaviour as you ask questions that seek to solve how we think, act and feel.
