What will you learn?

Our outstanding Forensic Psychology Course has been specially written to enable anyone interested in learning about the use of psychological principles to understand the behaviour of criminals, and the value of psychology in detecting crime.

The best news is that this fantastic course requires no previous experience, and has no entry requirements. You just need a passion for the subject!

The course has been designed for someone without any prior knowledge of the subject and will allow the student to study the course at their own pace in their own home, emailed directly to your inbox. This course does not entitle you to work as a Forensic Psychologist, though will give you a solid knowledge base and an invaluable insight of child psychology without investing and committing a sizeable investment and time enrolling onto a college or university programme, the course gives you a great opportunity to test the water, and if you do enjoy it, you have a solid foundation. As after completing this course, you may wish to continue your training with a college or university  to build a platform for your career.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
