Our BSc (Hons) Psychology with Foundation Entry qualification is designed for students who want to study Psychology, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to start the Honours degree programme just yet.This four-year programme introduces the students to psychological theory and research and their application to human thoughts and behaviours. Covering a range of topics, the course will help students investigate an extensive array of phenomena including social interactions, cognitive processes, developmental stages and biological influences on human activities.In the first year students will develop the study skills necessary for studying at a higher education level, while also learning that about the foundations of psychology as an academic subject.In the second year, students will be introduced to the main disciplines in psychology: Biological, Cognitive, Developmental, Social and Individual Differences. Students will also be given an insight into the scientific methods and techniques used to conducted research in psychology, including the use of psychometric tests.Tailored around the professional standards within psychology the third year will help students build on the insight gained during their first year and develop their skills in the practical workings of psychology and research. Modules studied include Introduction to Neuropsychology and Health Psychology. There will also be an opportunity for students to further their own individual interests through the Minor Research Project module, in which the student will determine their own research topic.This personalised learning approach will be continued into the final year of study, with students being able to choose between a number of optional modules. The main focus of the final year of study is the student’s own independent research in the form of the Major Project. This offers students the chance to undertake an independent piece of primary research into an area of psychology of their own choosing.
