    What an excellent introduction to psychology! I wanted to know more about the basics of psychology and how our brains work but he went above and beyond what I expected and gave such a detailed overview of how research has changed overtime and the different aspects of psychology that have been researched. I felt that he took a lot of time to plan what he was going to teach us and it showed when I came away feeling far more knowledgeable than before I started. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants the chance to get a great detailed overview of psychology and a better understanding of the many areas it involves.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this 5 week course. The lecturer was brilliant. He was interesting and presented the subject well.
    I had been searching for a local Pyschology course for several years, so I was very pleased to have found this course.
    I came across the course in an advert in a supplement of the Bath Chronicle by chance. I suggest that when the course is advertised in future that it is hi-lighted as NEW this year. I nearer missed it.

    An excellent introduction into the ideas and practices of psychology. I feel I left the course with a decent background knowledge of the many fields and would recommend this course to anyone who wants to know a bit more about what makes us tick.
