You can usually take higher education courses if you’re 18 or older. They’re regularly taught in universities, colleges and professional institutions such as art schools or agricultural colleges - nearly all of which have their own websites. You can get a wide range of skills, for example, diplomas, bachelor degrees, foundation degrees and post-graduate degrees.
Psychology is the study of human behavior and the human mind. As a science, it only began in the late nineteenth century with the groundbreaking studies of psychologists such as Sigmund Freud. Psychology has several sub-disciplines that explore emotional and cognitive conditions and states.

Vienna is teeming with people from around the world who have made this city their home.
Situated at the center of Europe and rich in culture, this is a place where people from all walks of life thrive. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is also a city where the study of society has a long history and where modern psychology claims its birthplace. Many prominent thinkers made Vienna their home—Alfred Adler, Max Wertheimer, Helene Deutsch, Erwin Ringel, Viktor Frankl (who taught at IES Abroad), and, of course, Sigmund Freud.

Modern brain research makes an invaluable contribution to successful and efficient communication. How is information received and processed?

This is a masterclass in Anger Management designed to provide you with some great strategies for dealing with anger.
Anger is a universal experience. Dogs get angry, bees get angry, and so do humans. You don’t have to be a psychologist to know that managing anger productively is something few individuals, organizations, and societies do well. Yet research tells us that those who do manage their anger at work are much more successful than those who don’t.
The co-worker who can productively confront his teammate about his negative attitude increases his team’s chance of success as well as minimizes destructive conflicts. The customer service agent who can defuse the angry customer not only keeps her customers loyal but makes her own day less troublesome. This one-day workshop is designed to help give you and your organization that edge....

The Experimental Psychology Gap Year Programme is designed to provide knowledge and practical skills to students considering further study in the field of Psychology.
Introduction to Experimental Psychology
Experimental Psychologists have addressed some of the most intriguing questions of life: What makes you you? What makes you different from other people? Which is more important – nature or nurture? Free Will or Determinism? How do we process and recall information? The Experimental Psychology core classes provide students with the opportunity to study, discuss and debate these alongside a wide range of other fascinating and controversial issues. This course will cover some of the most fundamental psychological concepts and introduce some of the most influential theorists. Students are encouraged to evaluate the material critically, to engage in discussion and debate, to gain insight into their own personalities and development and to relate the material to their own lives and experiences. Students get the chance to engage with the discipline on a practical level too, designing their own experiment in small groups....
