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.


Our course combines broad theoretical skills of modern psychology practice with a focus on the neuroscientific explanations and research of human behaviour.

You’ll study in the psychology department which has some of the most high-tech equipment available. In our sector-leading laboratory, you’ll have access to all the facilities you would imagine from a top class lab – psychophysiological monitoring, electroencephalography (EEG), and more.

The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and you’ll have access to membership once you graduate with your psychology and neuroscience degree.

After graduation, you can choose to progress into postgraduate training or pursue a career in law, politics or teaching. Previous graduates have gone on to work with companies like Pro Star Academy, Royal Free Hospital, and more.

Course content

You will begin studying the foundations of both psychology and neuroscience, enhancing your understanding of the discipline by learning about data analysis, research methods, processes and concepts. Your knowledge will be deepened with the study of biological and cognitive psychology, developmental psychology and clinical neurophysiology, while continuing to nurture your approach to research with a specific focus on ethics in psychology. Finally, you will have the opportunity to specialise in an area which will give you the best route towards your chosen career. As well as writing a dissertation on a topic of your choice, you will learn about social psychology and individual differences.

What will you gain?

This degree is designed to give you a deep understanding of psychology and neuroscience, preparing you for accredited postgraduate training while also teaching you the transferable skills necessary for a successful career in a diverse range of industries. You will gain hands-on experience by working with some of the UK's most up-to-date and extensive facilities for studying psychology which includes a psychophysiology laboratory, electroencephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation equipment, large Apple Mac-quipped teaching laboratories, a video editing suite, and interview and testing rooms for student project work.


The range of professional skills that you will develop ensures you are highly valued across the economy. You will also gain the perfect academic grounding to progress into postgraduate training in areas such as educational, clinical, forensic, health and occupational psychology. You can choose to study further to become practising psychologists or progress into related professions such as counselling, psychotherapy, teaching or research. Many graduates also go on to pursue careers in other areas, such as journalism or law.

Previous graduates have been successful at gaining employment in roles such as rehabilitation associate, assistant psychologist, social therapist, graduate academic assistant, psychological well-being practitioner and mental health support worker. Organisations employing our graduates include North East London Health Trust, Homerton Hospital, Cygnet Healthcare, Homestart Primary School, Pro Star Academy, Caterlysts, and Royal Free Hospital. Several graduates have also gone on to be self-employed.
