Program description

Psychology With Foundation Year

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Do the inner workings of the human mind intrigue you? Do you want to see what the brain, the most complicated engine in the universe, is capable of? Through psychology, you’ll understand the depths of the human psyche. You’ll find yourself involved in contemporary research in the social, developmental, cognitive, individual differences and biological dimensions of behaviour.

Become an expert in all areas of Psychology

You'll study the applications of psychology in a wide range of areas, including specific social problems in relation to crime, the workplace and mental health. Working through theories posed by Freud and Jung to your own original research, you’ll have a strong grasp of what makes the mind tick.

Through course assessments you'll gain key skills such as how to work in a team, give engaging presentations, write concise reports, and analyse data effectively. In the final year of study you’ll also be able to choose from a range of applied and theoretical modules.

Be a part of the British Psychological Society

This course has been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), a qualification recognised by major employers throughout the country. All our compulsory modules take you through the core BPS requirements. Once you graduate, with a 2.2 or above, you’ll be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). From there, you’ll be able to take the next steps towards being a Chartered Psychologist.

Admission requirements

What are the course entry requirements?
