International Foundation Programme in Social Science - Aston University

The International Foundation Programme in Social Science offers you to the chance to develop a solid foundation for an exciting career in social sciences. You will get a taste for many of the subjects we offer, to help you choose which path you’d like to follow. Exploring the world of modern politics, you will study topics including foreign relations and conflict resolution, learning to analyse and evaluate political events and developments. A developmental psychology module will teach you how cognition, language and perception develop in children and how research using children is conducted. In addition, you will study the sociology of identities and inequalities. All the modules included in the programme encourage you to develop skills in critical thinking, and independent study. Classes are designed to stimulate new ways of thinking and approaching topics, leaving you fully prepared to join the School of Languages and Social Sciences on an undergraduate degree programme. This course is for non-EU international students only.
