Students from across all our programmes have the opportunity to participate in a dynamic international learning community, in which mind, body and spirit are equally honoured.
Our educational programmes include postgraduate ( Masters and PhD) as well as Open Learning Courses for those who want to study for personal enrichment or supplementary learning. We facilitate many of our educational programmes online, providing 1-to-1 virtual tuition and guidance.
Our Transformative Learning Programmes
ACADEMIC DEGREE PROGRAMMES
We offer postgraduate programmes in the areas of consciousness studies, spirituality and transpersonal psychology. PhD, Masters (MSc), Diploma (PG Dip) and Certificate (PG Cert) programmes provide intellectually-challenging studies, focusing on such issues as the nature of consciousness, the dynamics between psyche and soma, the psychology of self and higher states of being, creativity and transformation, and the psychological basis of spiritual and mystical practices. In addition to a rigorous curriculum, the programmes are distinctive in valuing experiential approaches to learning and encouraging students to incorporate insights from their studies into their daily lives.
OPEN LEARNING COURSES
For those seeking to study for personal enrichment, self-development or supplementary career-learning in transpersonal psychology, we offer access to a range of specialised on-line courses from within our postgraduate programmes. As an Open Learner you have the opportunity to explore the same topics that we cover in our postgraduate programmes, while also enjoying the same level of access to our learning facilities and tutors. The only difference is that you do not need to complete any assignments normally required to fulfill the academic requirements for the postgraduate programmes!
