Understand the human mind

Short courses and training

Introducing a range of theories, skills and techniques to help you understand the human mind and its functions, and to gain an appreciation of how we think, both collectively and as individuals. There are options to progress your studies to postgraduate study. 

Many of our short courses, including flexible online courses, weekly classes (both in Oxford and online) and some summer schools, can be studied for credit, which means they can count towards a recognised qualification such as our Undergraduate Certificate of Higher Education.
