If you are interested in studying for a Psychology degree, but feel that you have a non-standard academic background, this is a programme that has been designed for you. It is intended for students from a variety of vocational, academic and non-academic backgrounds who may typically have had a break in their education. C801 is run in collaboration with Wirral Metropolitan College and those on the programme benefit from facilities at both locations. Successful completion of the first two years (Year Zero and Year One) allows transfer to the second year of C800. Class sizes at Wirral are limited to enhance learning and group support. While you are at Wirral Metropolitan College, you will take six modules a year, with a mix of Psychology and complementary studies and IT skills. Psychology modules undertaken over the four years aim to provide an understanding of the principal methods and background of Psychology (along with approaches to the possible biological basis of consciousness) before developing your awareness of psychological application to real world issues. There is also a research project, where you will undertake an experiment or field observation based on a research question.
