Clinical Psychology with Integrated Foundation Year at University of Sunderland - UCAS

Course summary

This is a four-year version of our popular BSc (Hons) Clinical Psychology course, with an integrated foundation year. Understand key aspects of clinical psychology and consider what kind of practitioner you want to be. Develop the skills necessary to work with people who have mental health problems. Graduate with a comprehensive view of what clinical psychology is and what it can achieve. Through our integrated modules, you will gain an understanding of all aspects of psychology (such as developmental, biological, cognitive, and evolutionary), considering the overlaps and how this can explain and help to treat different mental health problems. You will be introduced to key concepts in clinical psychology such as patient assessment, formulation and professional and ethical conduct. There is an emphasis on practical skills and reflective practice throughout the course in addition to studying topics such as addiction, psychosis, cognitive and emotional impairments, and depression. Learn about mental health in depth, considering ethical and current issues around policy and politics of diagnosis and assessment. With further modules based around patient care and assessment, formulation, and professional and ethical conduct, you will develop the skills to become a reflective practitioner.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

The Integrated Foundation Year is specially designed to support you where you have just missed the grades required for direct entry onto a three-year degree, or if you have relevant work experience and are now looking to broaden your subject knowledge but want more time to develop study skills before starting your degree. Entry requirements are provided for guidance only and we may offer you an entrance interview which will help us determine your eligibility for your chosen degree. This enables us to consider making you an offer if you are perhaps a mature student who has been out of education for a period of time, or you have gained significant knowledge and skills through employment rather than traditional education. Eligible entry qualifications: 1. Normally a minimum of three Level 2 qualifications (NVQ, GCSE or equivalent), including Math's and English langauge at grade C or above** and a minimum of 40 UCAS tariff points from Level 3 qualifications (e.g. A or AS Levels, T Levels, BTEC certificates/diplomas, access courses or equivalent) OR 2. Demonstrable evidence of appropriate knowledge and skills acquired from at least three years of post-school work experience. ** If you have studied for a GCSE which has a numerical grade then you will need to achieve a grade 4 or above. Equivalent alternative qualifications are also accepted, such as Level 2 Key Skills in Communication and Application of Number. If you have not achieved a grade C in Math's and English language, we may be able to work with you to ensure that you are able to gain these in the first year of the course, depending on your experience.
