          Understanding Lifespan Psychology

          Our Understanding Lifespan Psychology short course will introduce you to key theories and research findings in developmental and lifespan psychology. The focus will be on development in childhood and adolescence, adulthood and old age. The module explores a range of topics such as psychosexual development, parenting and families. Consideration is also given to the impact of culture on our understanding of developmental processes. You will be helped to consider ways in which such theories fall short, and why this might be. You will also be encouraged to reflect on the ways in which theories studied may be applied to your understanding of yourself and others.

          • Entry requirements

            Entry requirements

            Most of our short courses have no formal entry requirements and are open to all students. You may have to fulfil specific prerequisites for some intermediate-level or advanced-level courses, but these will be specified where relevant.

            Visa requirements

            If you are not from the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa.

            The visa you apply for varies according to the length of your course:

            • Courses of more than six months' duration.
            • Courses of less than six months' duration.
            • Pre-sessional English language courses.

            International students who require a Tier 4 visa should apply for our full-time courses (with the exception of modular enrolment certificates of higher education and graduate certificates), as these qualify for Tier 4 sponsorship. If you are living in the UK on a Tier 4 visa, you will not be eligible to enrol as a student on Birkbeck's part-time courses (with the exception of some modules).

            For full information, read our visa information for international students page.
