A foundation year in psychology is for people who are not ready for a normal degree, or they haven't met the entry requirements for the BSc psychology degree on its own. If you don't meet the requirements for the BSc psychology degree, you'll have your insurance choice. I put BSc psychology as my firm and then BSc psychology with foundation year as my insurance.
The A level retake I'm unsure of. And no it's now frowned upon. The foundation degree may actually help prepare you for the actual degree so I don't see why you should be ashamed of it. What have you chosen as your insurance choice?

The foundation degree is for students who either feel they are not ready for the degree yet or did not meet the requirements for the full degree. A level retake, you'd have to ask about that. It's not frowned upon, the degree is just a stepping stone into what you'll have to do in the other degree. They have 4 modules over the year. What did you put as your insurance choice?

It's not frowned upon if it will help you
I've put the foundation year as my insurance and the degree as my firm

It's okay I've received all the information I need by emailing the University! I already changed my course to a foundation year in Psychology at Middlesex so it's fine.
But thank you!

Hello Ihonestlydk,

That is great! We look forward to welcoming you in October
If you do not meet the entry requirements the admissions will automatically offer you a foundation year. It works pretty much like an undergraduate degree, it is just an easier way to get to the course and you will learn all the basics.
You will have assessments too!


You can find a bit more information here: http://www.mdx.ac.uk/courses/undergr...-in-psychology

Let me know if you have any other questions!
Have a great day

Ludovica

That's really good! Well done
I'm still waiting for my diploma certificate to arrive, before I can do anything further with my application. I requested the uni change my course beforehand but according to my application, they haven't so I emailed them. Guess I'll have to see what happens.
