BSc Psychology with Foundation Year - Full-time
The foundation year provides students with non-standard entry qualifications with a thorough and supportive academic preparation for successful degree level study in the Department of Psychology. It is carefully designed to build confidence in student’s abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide the subject specific knowledge essential for success.
This year is taught within the Department for Lifelong Learning, where we have nearly forty years’ experience working with adult learners, helping them to unlock their potential to succeed through offering accessible foundation courses that can lead to full and part-time degree level study.
You will be learning alongside other students who are studying for a number of different degrees, typically in small classes, supporting one another to develop and succeed.
This foundation year also includes a range of opportunities to become involved in the life of the Department of Psychology.
