This Certificate combines a mix of lectures, practical work and informal discussions around important topics in cyberpsychology. You are also provided with a series of study skills seminars including essay writing, referencing and researching academic literature.
You are required to complete assignments during the year, but there are no written examinations. Support is also provided as you prepare your assignments, and feedback is available on drafts if required.
