Course summary

This extended Psychology degree is available to students who do not have the entry requirements for the standard BSc Hons Psychology programme. The first year is a foundation year in which you learn about psychology, research methods and study skills to a level that prepares you for degree-level study. Following this, you will join the three-year psychology course, studying modules from cognitive psychology and neuroscience to developmental psychology and social psychology. Our degree is accredited by the British Psychological Society. Provided you pass the project and graduate with second-class honours or above, you become eligible for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the BPS. This is essential if you wish to pursue further training to become a Chartered Psychologist. This course not only prepares you for further training for careers in psychology, it also helps you gain technical and interpersonal skills that are popular with a range of employers. Psychology at Greenwich is one of the top three universities in London and seventh in the UK for graduate careers (2021 Guardian League Table). · The foundation year of the programme includes modules on psychology, health and wellbeing, research methods and study skills. · We emphasise strong student support, through 1-to-1 meetings, small group tutorials and research support from specialist Psychology technicians. · All modules after the foundation year are co-taught with the standard BSc Hons Psychology degree. You will be required to gain 50 hours of relevant work experience during the degree. We provide a core specialist employability module in the final year of the degree, entitled Psychology and Graduate Career Development, that provides support with finding postgraduate study or commencing a career.
