Course summary

Our extended BSc Hons Psychology with a foundation year explores adult and child psychology, how the brain works, and how psychology is applied in the real world. 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.
