Overview

Psychology is essentially the scientific study of mind and behaviour : how we think, feel, act and interact individually and in groups.  

At LITE Regals' award winning psychology course, students will be offered an insight and introduction to the topics of psychology offered at Cambridge University.

Aimed primarily to all students interested in the field of psychology or who would like to study this subject further at a top university, the course is run through exciting hands-on workshops with mind blowing psychology experiments to help students gain an insight and knowledge into human thoughts and associated behaviour. These workshops coupled with top academic tutors and with like-minded students make this an exciting and rewarding course.

Academic content

Psychology – ‘The science of behaviour and mental processes’.

What enables two people to get on with one another?

Why do we behave the way we do?

Do we have free will or are we driven by our environment, biology or non-conscious influences?

Why do humans hurt other humans?

The course is workshop and tutorial driven, which provides students with an important opportunity for the learning and discussion of the course. Students will be asked to do individual research in their chosen field of psychology and learn to interprete data and to make a presentation in front of fellow students and tutor.

Students will get the chance to discuss, study and debate questions of the mind in lively, open, tutor-led sessions. Tutors will provide a grounding in the main schools of thought and notable contributors in the development of psychology; Freud and psychoanalysis the study of the unconscious mind in relation to childhood experiences, personality and sexuality; Wilhelm Wundt and structuralism the practice of interviewing and recording thought and behaviour; William James and functionalism questioning why we think, feel, act; Pavlov and behaviourism the way we adapt to our environment.

This will lead into the introduction of the new modern scientific approach of ‘experimental psychology’. An approach based on the principles of scientific research, experiment, recording quantifiable data for analysis, leading to measurable hypotheses.

Through structured teaching, workshops and real experiments students will gain knowledge and hands-on experience of this new approach. Students will be encouraged to construct statements on human behaviour and mental processes that are measurable and testable. They will be guided in the use of scientific techniques using experimental and control groups, understanding the need for randomised samples and ‘placebos’, gain the ability to manipulate variables to isolate effects, and from data analyse their initial hypothesis. Students will present to the group their approach and findings and certification will be assessed on their own psychology experiment.

In addition to lectures, students participate in in-class experiments demonstrating key psychological phenomena. Working in teams, and under instructor supervision, students design, run, and present data from an original psychological experiment.

The academic and practical approach will be enhanced by visits to the British Psychological Society for presentations on current topics together with visits to the Science Museum and Freud Museum in London.

My son was here last summer. He enjoyed the Business Enterprise course and loved the different activities after class. Great welfare too. Accommodation was suitable, and food was OK. Overall, a good experience that helped him get through the first semester of college.

My daughter is very satisfied with this institute. She took the Sumer Intensive English Course. We are immigrants from India and I want her to be able to speak the language with confident. She loved the program and the tutors, I can tell now that she feels more secure when talking to others and her writting skills have improved as well.

The experience of a lifetime. I took the LAW SCHOOL PREPARATION SUMMER COURSE here in Lite Regal, mainly because I needed some help with my stage fright. It gives me a lot of anxiety just by talking in public, and as a future lawyer I need to overcome that; the tutors here in this institute gave me the real tools and made me feel more secure about myself, so I won't have any problems when I begin my career. From the students to the tutors, they all helped me a lot and I am grateful to them.

I was home sick at first, but after a few days I made many friends - up to this day we still talk to each other... The staff were friendly, especially the activities leaders. Activities coordinators were the best, we had such a wonderful time learning and having fun on outdoors activities. I will never forget this experience at Lite Regal, best summer course ever.

I did the Film Academy Summer Course, and I absolutely LOVED it. I got my hands on practical training in all aspects of film production, including camera work, lighting, script writing, editing. The tutors and lecturers are professionals in the Film Industry and they taught me a lot of things. I did the course in London and I got the chance to do a field excursion to the Warner Bros Studio Tour; experience was ace... Campus was great and I did a lot of friends. I would take the course again if I've got the chance.

Couldn't ask for more. My son was impressed with this course, not only it was educational but also very cultural. He took the Global Leadership course, I guess he wants to be an entrepreneur just like his father. He learned so much, I know now he is ready for College. Thank you Lite Regal.

Nice institute. I attended the Creative Writing course last summer, 2 weeks in London. Good instructors, the people were nice and you learn a lot. I give it 4 star because the food was OK and the wifi sometimes was a little slow, but other than that I was a great experience.

My daughter took the 4 week Medicine course in London. Her dream has always been being a world famous M.D., but before she started applying for the long career, I wanted her to be inspired and to see if that was her truly vocation... She LOVED the course here at Lite Regal Education, she always tell me that thanks to this institute she rested assured that she was following the right track. I am greatly grateful with this institute, they did their best in providing my daughter with the tools so she could finally make up her mind.

The school is friendly and there are lots of activitys'. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn but also enjoy learning. I applied for 6 summer schools, but out of every single one this was my first choose for so many reasons. The wifi was dropping in the evening on few occasions. When I complained about the wifi they told me that the router was far away from the room. But luckily they gave my me a better room.

I remember having a great time last summer attending the 4 weeks course in Cambridge. It was a marvelous experience. I attended the course for Engineering Preparation, very complete and inspirational. The staff are talented people and the students I met there were amazing, it was educational but fun at the same time. I certainly hope this course will help me with my application to the University of Cambridge.
