The course has a strong applied focus that will enable you to see the potential for using psychology, whether as a practitioner, or when engaging the services of consultants. You will learn how to apply occupational psychology methodologies to solve real-life problems in organisations. Core psychological theories will be illustrated with the latest research and examples of practice.

The course uses an online teaching and learning system to create an interactive learning environment. Your learning materials are accessed completely online at any time of the day. Distance learning with the School of Psychology means studying in your own time on a part-time basis, so you can combine achieving a qualification with work or family commitments.

The Conference provides support for your studies and the opportunity to hear esteemed speakers, both academic and practitioner, on areas of occupational psychology. It is also an excellent opportunity to meet staff and fellow students.
