Psychology with Foundation Year

Would you like to know what makes people behave and think in the way that they do? If you are interested in understanding the processes influencing how people think, behave, feel and interact then this is the course for you. At UWL we recognise that many people have a great deal of potential but are not yet ready to undertake a three year degree course. Your foundation year has been developed to offer a balance between psychology modules and modules that will support your skills development. As a part of your foundation year studies you will undertake two modules that are run centrally within the university, these modules aim to ensure that you are introduced to all the learning and assessment methods you are most likely to encounter during your studies. These highly supportive modules are run by people with a great deal of expertise in assisting students in realising their potential. University of West London (UWL) offers one of the longest established psychology courses. Our courses have been accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) since 1986. This well-established course, with its long-standing experience in teaching core BPS content, offers a fresh and contemporary insight into the study of human behaviour. This course is also part of the exciting Erasmus programme, which allows you to study abroad for one semester. We have your careers in mind and aim to assist you in obtaining your goals by inviting a range of practicing psychologists to offer insight and advice on careers in psychology and related areas. During the course you will undertake work experience, learning to relate the theoretical knowledge gained on the course and applying it to the world of work and real life experiences. Past students have completed their work experience in a range of settings including: • victim support schemes • drug support schemes • after school clubs • market research. We pride ourselves on providing a highly supportive environment. You will be assigned a personal tutor who will work with you and support you during your time at UWL. We have an open-door policy and there will be someone on hand to offer academic and pastoral support when needed. Our experienced teaching staff are well informed by their research interests on a range of current issues such as: • cyber-bullying • binge drinking • honour based violence. Graduates from this course go on to careers in a wide range of public and private sector professions, including positions in social and welfare organisations, business and finance, education, marketing and advertising to name but a few. You may wish to undertake postgraduate study in your subject or even explore something new. This course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)
