Course summary

The Psychology with Foundation Year programme combines a foundation year with the three year Honours Degree to create an integrated four year programme. The programme provides an excellent introduction to studying a science subject at university and will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence required to study at degree-level.The Psychology with Foundation Year programme is ideal for applicants who do not quite meet the entry requirements for the three year degree or who would benefit from further a further year’s study in relation to studying a science subject. Successful completion of the Foundation Year will see you progress to Year 1 of the BSc Psychology programme. You can also choose to transfer onto one of the other psychology degree programmes – BSc Psychology with Clinical & Health Psychology, BSc Psychology with Neuropsychology or BSc Psychology with Forensic Psychology.As you progress from the foundation elements to the main degree elements of this course your horizons will be broadened by learning all of the exciting and diverse areas that a psychology degree has to offer. You’ll learn about human development through the lifespan and the myriad of influences upon people from their biology and physiology to how parenting and socialisation influence us. You’ll learn not only about the intricacies of what makes humans tick and how we are able to navigate such a complex internal and external environment but also the mechanics and effects of what happens when these complex systems stop working well.You’ll also learn from a wide range of modules about some of the tools that psychologists use to support and understand human behaviour and will have access to exciting research tools to understand brain activity, developing interventions for people in distress, and many other opportunities to develop into a well-rounded psychologist. This degree will give you a broad foundation in psychology that you can tailor to your own interests and provide you with a stable base from which to dive into a varied number of career opportunities.Psychology at Bangor University was founded in 1963 and is one of the UK's oldest and largest psychology departments.
