Why study BSc (Hons) Psychology with us?
You can choose to take an additional Foundation Year before you start your BSc (Hons) Psychology. This introductory year focuses on developing the key skills required to study at degree level and covers the same six modules as on our law and business degrees. The modules covered will initially enhance your communications skills, digital and information literacy and ability to think critically. You then have the added flexibility of switching your degree programme if another discipline captures your interest, subject to availability and entry requirements.
Entry requirements for the Foundation Year are different from our three-year degrees. For full details, check our Entry Requirements page.
