Dear Prospective Students,
Welcome to the Institute of Psychology at Beaconhouse National University. The Institute of Psychology is an excellent choice to seek education in the discipline of psychology and prepare for a bright career.
The Institute of Psychology at Beaconhouse National University was established in 2004 to provide opportunities in the private sector for higher studies in Psychology. It offers a broad range of programs in Psychology that not only impart contemporary knowledge of the subject, but also train students in general skills of research, critical thinking, statistical analysis, written and oral communication and helps the students to develop their clinical acumen. Our approach is evolutionary; we constantly update our courses to ensure that they remain challenging and relevant. Our emphasis is on professional training that facilitates students in the applied areas of their subject; therefore, the programs are conducted in collaboration with psychiatric units at teaching hospitals and other educational and business organizations in both the private and public sector.
What makes us distinctive is the academically rigorous, yet supportive culture that prevails in the Institute. We offer an environment that is genuinely warm and friendly, and places a very high value on the services provided to students. Our teaching methods reflect both contemporary, as well as traditional didactic practices. We strive to ensure that students receive a well-rounded and informed perspective on the subject of Psychology. With a rigorous core of courses at its epicenter, the Institute encourages students’ inquiry and research. Our faculty brings pertinent clinical and research experience to the classrooms, thus developing students’ appreciation for different scenarios, innovative thinking and promoting their professional networking skills. A key feature of our program is to provide each student with a mentor who serves as a counselor and guides the student throughout his/her academic program. The mentor is a member of academic staff who is approachable, empathetic and helps in solving any problem that the student might encounter on campus.
I hope for the prospective students to have an exciting and enriching academic experience at the Institute of Psychology.
