Course summary

The Foundation Year in Psychology is offered as an entry route to a psychology degree for students who don't yet meet the entry requirements for degree-level study. You enrol on a four-year course, which includes the one-year foundation course. If you complete this year successfully you progress directly onto one of our three-year degree courses in this subject area. The number of students who progress to degree study are very high and in fact have gone on to become some of our most successful graduates.

Overview

Through studying both psychology and education you will gain an expert understanding of educational principles underpinned by the theory of human behaviour. It is the ideal degree for those wishing to gain the knowledge, skills and experience to enter a career within education.

Our degree, accredited by the British Psychology Society (BPS), offers some of the best psychology teaching and research facilities in the UK, including both a psychophysiology and a virtual reality laboratory. Not only will you gain theoretical and practical knowledge of modern psychology (the study of human behaviour), you will integrate your learning with the theory and practice of education studies.

Taking part in a year long industry placement can enable you to put theory into practice and gain invaluable professional experience. Our degree is an ideal step towards postgraduate training to become an occupational or organisational psychologist, or as a route towards an education-focused career. This can include roles within research, teaching or academia.

Course highlights

  • Our degree gives you the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society (which can lead to a career as a psychologist)
  • You can choose to take part in a year long industry placement where you will gain invaluable professional experience. There are no additional fees to pay for the full academic year
  • We offer some of the best psychology teaching and research facilities in the UK, including specialist laboratories for psychophysiology, social observation, virtual reality, and auditory cognition
  • As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.

Careers

Our psychology graduates are attractive to employers because they bring a detailed knowledge and understanding of human behaviour, coupled with advanced communication skills. Though the career options are broad, many of our graduates progress to postgraduate study in order to become a chartered psychologist in a range of psychological disciplines. You will also be well placed to enter a career within education.

Upon successful graduation you will be eligible for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership to the British Psychology Society, which is a necessary step if you wish to pursue postgraduate training in areas such as clinical, counselling, educational, occupational, health or forensic psychology.
