Psychology Diploma overview

This Psychology Diploma address key ethical questions, as well as delving deeper in the psychology and what makes us tick.

Psychology attracts many people. It is a fascinating subject that can take you deep into the realm of thought and emotions.

Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. It is specifically interested in how behaviour is affected in certain contexts. It also seeks to understand and explain emotional, mental characteristics and attitudes in a person or in a group.

As you study this diploma in psychology online, you will look at how;

  • The human mind, brain, and behaviour have been studied over the years
  • Our understanding of the world changes and grows as we develop from a child into an adult
  • We can be influenced by others
  • Thoughts and actions are related to brain activity
  • The memory works, why we may forget things and what can be done to improve memory
  • Personality and intelligence are explained
  • Psychology is applied in the real world and situations

The course is divided into 12 modules, all with high-quality materials and assignments. The course concludes by bringing together everything you have covered and applying it in a professional setting.

As with most of our courses, the home study psychology diploma is assessed through assignments completed after each module. You will receive detailed feedback from your tutor, with helpful hints and suggestions to help progress your studies.

The course was written for NCC by Dr. Matthew Smith, former Associate Professor of Psychology at Liverpool Hope University and Elizabeth Ottley, a postgraduate student in Psychology and can be studied online or as a paper-based course.

  • Would recommend them to everyone

    By on 24 June 2016
    I first used NCC Home Learning a few years ago and did not hesitate to study with them again this time. My Psychology course was written in 12 modules with well structured sections and examples to check your own learning before tackling the module assignments. The tutor support system worked really well for me and my assignment feedback was always emailed promptly with encouragement and suggestions. I enjoy distance learning because it fits in with my family and work commitments and NCC offer such a range of courses, there must be something to suit everyone! NCC Home Learning are very easy to work with and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a distance learning course.
    Dear Rebecca Rogers
    Many thanks for your kind words and five star review. We are pleased that you decided to study again with NCC Home Learning for your Level 3 Psychology Diploma and that the study methodology suited your requirements for a work/life balance. Thank you for your recommendation and we wish you all the very best for the future. If we can provide any further support or information, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

    Kind regards,
    NCC Team

  • Thoroughly enjoyed the course and great tutor support.

  • Very enjoyable

    By on 17 November 2015
    I found the course very enjoyable and would recommend studying with NCC. The Psychology level 3 course was very informative and gave a good foundation for further study related to this topic.
    The support centre was superb and extremely quick at responding to any questions I had regarding the assignment feedback. Shaun was a great great help if I required any support or had any questions. What I liked in particular about NCC support is that there is always someone in the support centre to talk to for guidance Monday to Friday, unlike many other online study centres who only correspond via email.
    I will studying again next year with NCC, this time extending my knowledge with the Criminal Psychology course.
    Thanks to you all at NCC support.

  • Longer tutor support would be helpful

    By on 2 June 2015
    I would like to advance my Psychology on a higher level. Either in work place Psychology or Counselling. The course would be more beneficial if the tutor support was 18 months. Due to running my own large business my private time is limited.
    Dear Caroline Jones
    Thank you for your kind words Caroline. Our courses as standard are provided with 12 months tutor support which is sufficient for most of our students. If you wish to purchase additional tutor support you can do so by typing EXT6 for six months tutor support into the website search function. I will however pass on your feedback to our customer support team.

    Kind Regards
