The BSc Psychology with Foundation Year at the University of Sheffield provides students with non-standard entry qualifications with a thorough and supportive academic preparation for successful degree level study. The programme is carefully designed to build confidence in students’ abilities, develop essential academic and study skills, and provide the subject specific knowledge essential for success. We work closely with students to ensure that their chosen degree is the most appropriate one for them, offering a range of stimulating learning opportunities through which to explore the different career and study opportunities open to them, and introducing them to all the learning and assessment methods they are most likely to encounter during their degree. The foundation year is taught within the Department for Lifelong Learning, where we have nearly forty years’ experience working with adult learners to unlock their potential to succeed.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
