Psychology (Foundation) - Manchester Metropolitan University

As a psychologist, you’ll explore behaviour – the ways our minds work, how we think and interact with the world and why we react in the ways we do. Our course covers all elements of psychological study, from childhood, neuropsychology, and forensic to counselling, psychotherapy, and abnormal psychology. Psychologists explore behaviour using scientific methods such as observation, experiments and statistical analysis. On the course, you might be conducting experiments, placed in a mock courtroom giving evidence on a patient, debating against fellow students on how we motivate people to make healthy eating choices, or watching a role-play in our simulated living area. We support our students to develop their natural curiosity, creating psychology graduates equipped to explore the human experience in an ethical, empathetic and scientific manner. The BSc (Hons) Psychology with Foundation Year provides a route onto a degree if you don’t meet the entry requirements but have the ability to study a degree. **Features and benefits** - **Accredited course** - Our course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). - **Teaching expertise** - You’re taught by a large and diverse teaching team, with specialist lecturers who cover the whole field of psychology. - **Outstanding facilities** - You’ll have access to our specialist facilities for psychology demonstration and practice, which includes an fNIRS imaging research device, 12 experimental testing laboratories and six psychology laboratories. - **Internship opportunities** - You’ll have the opportunity to apply for a paid summer internship to work on a research project. - **Work-based learning** - In year two, you’ll spend time in a work environment, applying your psychology theory to the workplace
