Course summary

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS), this four-year programme allows students to commence their studies with a foundation year before beginning the main undergraduate degree programme. The first year of study is designed to develop academic skills and confidence required for an undergraduate degree. The content during the foundation year is tailored towards the curriculum of BSc Psychology. The BSc Psychology with Integrated Foundation Year degree enables students to examine the biological, cognitive, developmental, individual difference and social psychological principles underlying everyday experience and behaviour. The programme is designed to take students from the core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to human behaviour to an in-depth understanding of the human mind with the opportunity to conduct an independent dissertation project. On successful completion of the four year programme students will graduate with a BSc level degree and have the sound transferable knowledge, practical, analytical and technical skills that are highly marketable in a wide range of industries: working with children and adults, education, industry, media, civil service and marketing. The programme offers the student opportunities to experience and engage in a number of learning approaches in order to develop their subject specific knowledge. A variety of teaching and learning methods, such as lectures, workshops, group discussion and interpretative work, tutorials, laboratory activity and library work are used throughout the modules, but they all have a common theme: a student-centred approach. TStudents will engage in a variety of modes of assessment such as, portfolio, essays and literature reviews that will be crucial to develop critical thinking skills. Other modes of assessment will include examinations, laboratory reports, oral presentations that will demonstrate students’ engagement with the subject. The dissertation allows a range of intellectual and practical skills to be assessed. The majority of assessments have been designed to be flexible in scope to enable students to take responsibility for the exact nature of their own learning.
