Psychology (Including foundation year)

The BSc (Hons) Psychology degree is also available as a four year course including an integrated Foundation Year, and is designed for students who do not currently meet admissions criteria for direct entry onto the degree. You will start by completing a foundation year, which provides well-structured support, allowing you to develop your skills and knowledge before continuing onto the three year degree programme. Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. It has a broad scope and influences many other disciplines in the biological and social sciences. This BPS-accredited Psychology degree combines opportunities to study cutting edge research with access to excellent teaching and student support. On this Psychology course, you’ll study the major approaches in psychology, including social, cognitive, biological, and developmental psychology, neuroscience and research methods. You’ll also develop practical psychology skills in our purpose-built laboratories. A key element is the hands-on experience you’ll gain throughout your Psychology degree. You’ll be offered clinical experience on campus and have access to a range of exciting opportunities, including completion of specialist short courses, professional certificates and work placements – another great boost to your CV. You’ll develop additional skills that employers value, such as problem solving, analytical skills, communication and presentations, report writing, numeracy and teamwork. These can be transferred to other careers, including human resource management, teaching, social work, business, journalism, marketing, and police work.
