Course overview

Although we provide a separate, extended Advanced Diploma in Parapsychology, we recognise the need for a shorter but intellectually satisfying course for those who wish to study the subject in a more concise format. This Diploma course uses a single textbook. This Diploma may be taken on its own, or as a preparation for our Advanced Diploma in Parapsychology.

The course takes a scientific view of unexplained phenomena, asking what psychological processes can account for the experiences, and whether there are any indications of anomaly that warrant further research.

Topics include:

Paranormal cognition / mediumship and survival / possession and exorcism/ alien contact and alien abduction/ near-death experiences/ reincarnation/ dreams/ astrology/ religion, belief and science/ psychic fraud/ conspiracy theories/ science and experience/ cognition and belief

Entry criteria and suitability  

No particular qualifications are required for entry but a high standard of English Language and the ability to work from university-level textbooks will be helpful.  


Successful graduates will receive the Diploma in Parapsychology awarded by UK College of Holistic Training which is a private UK qualification.
