Course summary

Accredited by the British Psychology Society (BPS), the BSc Counselling Psychology with Integrated Foundation Year degree is a four-year programme that allows students to commence their studies with a foundation year before beginning the main undergraduate degree programme. The first year of study is designed to develop academic skills and confidence required for an undergraduate degree. The programme also enables students to examine the biological, cognitive, developmental, individual difference and social psychological principles underlying everyday experience and behaviour, and then focusing on a wide range of client issues as well as ethical issues in Counselling Psychology. The programme is designed to take students from the core discipline knowledge of theory and empirical findings relevant to human behaviour to an in-depth understanding of counselling psychology with the opportunity to conduct an independent dissertation project. On successful completion of the programme students will graduate with a BSc level degree and have the sound transferable knowledge, practical, analytical and technical skills that are highly marketable in a wide range of industries: e.g., counselling, academia, research, clinical, health as well as human resources, management, market research, communications, government and social research. Students will engage in a variety of modes of assessment such as, portfolio, essays and literature reviews that will be crucial to develop critical thinking skills. Other modes of assessment will include examinations, laboratory reports, oral presentations that will demonstrate students’ engagement with the subject.

The majority of assessments have been designed to be flexible in scope to enable students to take responsibility for the exact nature of their own learning.
