A Foundation year is a one year programme which helps students that cannot access our undergraduate programme directly because (1) they do not meet our requirements, or (2) have little or no recent study experience.
If you are one of those students, then you may want to join our foundation year, which is structured to help you acquire our standard entry requirements that you might be missing.
During this year, we offer a supportive academic preparation in Psychology that will bring you up to speed with essential academic skills and prepare you for successful degree level study.
By the end of the Foundation Year, students will have gained an introduction to the scientific underpinnings of Psychology, psychological research, a general overview about all the main psychological approaches and theories, and psychological issues to which Psychology try to find a solution.
