Course summary

Course Overview

The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.

Have you ever wondered what drives a person to crime? If criminal minds intrigue you, then this course will give you some of the answers. Criminological Psychology combines studying the core areas of psychology with applied areas of forensic psychology, victimology and psychology in the criminal justice system.

This course looks at how psychology furthers our understanding of criminal behaviour. It’s an opportunity to become involved in contemporary research in the social, developmental, cognitive, individual differences and biological dimensions of behaviour. You’ll also immerse yourself in the psychology present at every stage of the criminal justice system (crime, policing, legal system, prison, probation and rehabilitation).

More placements, more choices

Bucks is a Placements Plus university. So, whatever degree you do, you can be sure there’ll be plenty of industry-relevant opportunities on offer, to help you get into your chosen field.

We’ll also prepare you for work beforehand, with special skills for work training, further boosting your CV, and building skills employers will value. In recognition of the value we place on these skills we have incorporated this experience into your study time.

Placements Plus is all about helping you get some valuable experience under your belt while you’re a student. To increase your choices later, and help you get the graduate-level job you want.

What are my career prospects

Taking this course will make you eligible (subject to achieving a 2:2 or above) to apply for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society. It’s the first step to starting postgraduate study in any area of practice (including clinical, educational, forensic, counselling, health, cognitive neuropsychology and sports psychology).

We’ll help you find the sort of career that suits you with advice and talks that cover both voluntary work and full-time employment. Additionally, a number of speakers will be invited to talk about their experience in Forensic, Clinical and Counselling Psychology (eg MSc students, Forensic Psychologists in Training etc.).

After you graduate, you won’t be limited to psychology careers. The skills that you gain are wonderfully transferable skills for diverse areas such as health, education, sports, and local government.

How will you help me prepare for my future career?

Throughout your time with us we’ll support you on the route to your chosen career. We’ll help you to develop crucial skills, encouraging you to become enterprising, employable and good leaders. Our modules and teaching expertise will help you become more independent as a learner and more certain of your discipline expertise.
