Distance Learning Course FAQs
This course offers a flexible learning opportunity designed around your specific interests and circumstance. It provides structure and support to help you explore this fascinating subject, without needing to attend a residential course or engage with longer, formal study.
An important goal of the course is to help you explore how you might apply ecopsychology to your own personal and professional life. It may also complement your existing research or study in other academic or professional fields.
How it works
Each course is offered over a period of from 12 weeks to one year, depending on your circumstances and preferred pace of learning.
You are offered up to six, one-to-one personal tutorials. During your first personal tutorial, a learning plan is agreed according to your specific needs and interests.
There are no pre-requisites for study and places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
All tutorials take place via Skype, with support by email. Resources and your learning plan are administered via Google Drive.
There is no formal assessment, although you may choose to undertake some written work. If you do choose to write something, support and feedback can be offered.
The course is taught in English but can be done from anywhere in the world.
Each course includes:
- up to six personal tutorials of one hour each;
- a personal learning plan;
- online resources and reading materials;
- email support.
The programme is not formally validated. It is designed to offer you a personalised learning experience based on your own curiosity and passions, and fitted around your needs and circumstances.
An emphasis will be placed on helping you apply your learning to bring ecopsychology into practice.
On completion of the course, a Continuing Professional Development certificate can be provided for 30 hours of study.
