About the Course

If you wish to understand people, their conduct, and the relationships between them, Psychology
might just be the right subject for you.

What pushed me to study this subject was The Psychosexual Theory by Sigmund Freud, though after gaining more knowledge I have a disagreement with this theory now.

Overall, Psychology is a vivid subject, one must go to depths to develop interest. Once you start
reading it, things would start to make sense, which would help to provide an explanation for a lot of things.

What do Students have to Say About the Course?

The course is certainly time-consuming, and requires quite a bit of effort, but if psychology is something that genuinely interests you then you’ll pull through. My favourite portion of the curriculum is most certainly the practicals. However, I will say this, you will be dependent on the professors to a certain degree, no matter much you study on your own.
