Centre for Lifelong Learning Study Undergraduate Courses

Unique opportunities to study alongside undergraduate students at Strathclyde


Following a very successful pilot in 2017/18, in association with the School of Psychological Sciences and Health, we are delighted to offer the unique opportunity again this year to join undergraduate students in their first year psychology lectures. This fascinating course will look at conditions of human behaviour – how we learn, remember, co-ordinate our actions and interact with others – and the reasons for differences between individuals, such as personality or intelligence.

Through bi-weekly lectures, this course offers students a real flavour of what studying 1st year Psychology is like as an undergraduate student. However, there are no exams – just assessments to help support your learning and explore the subject further.

What entry qualifications do you need?

There are no formal entry qualifications for the course and no prior knowledge of psychology is required. Open to all adults with an interest in psychology.

When do classes run?

Classes are held twice a week on a Monday and a Friday from 2-3pm.

  • Semester 1 commences on Monday 17th September 2018 and runs for 11 weeks
