I want to do undergraduate course in Psychology and I've realised some universities have a placement year (4 years), so if I apply for the 4 years placement year, but I don't get it, does that mean they will automatically put me down for 3 years? Or if I don't get the 4 year placement as there are limited places for that, does that mean I didn't get on that course/uni at all?
Thank you

You can apply for the 4 year course with a placement year and you're likely to be offered a place on that course if you meet the entry requirements, have a suitable personal statement etc. If you get rejected, they may offer the course without a placement year instead so just the 3 year degree.

Is the 3 year degree automatically guaranteed if I don't get the 4 year?

It's not guaranteed as there's the possibility of being rejected for whatever reason. I would always suggest applying for the course which includes a placement year though

Hi Alexandra03!

I know the user above has answered all your questions which is great! But I just wanted to let you know how much I recommend applying for the course with the placement. Placements are a really great thing to do as they are a great thing to put on your CV and stand out amongst others in job applications after Uni, and they are also great as the company you work for in your placement might offer you a job for after Uni. These are great things to keep in mind when going into Psychology as I believe Psychology related jobs are quite competitive. Hopefully this helps a bit if you weren't sure about whether to apply to the 4 year or 3 year course! Also even though there are great reasons to do a placement, not everyone will sign up for the 3 year course. Many students would rather study for 3 years and then seek employment.

Hope this helps!
