Durham Psychology Foundation Year

Hi, I've applied to Durham for psych with a foundation year and I was just wondering if anyone could tell me more about the application process? I've read that there is an interview and/or piece of written work involved but I'm still not sure what exactly what entails and I would love some insight and some advice for how to prepare for it.

Thank you!

When did you hear back??

I sent the reflection in last night so ive not heard anything back yet but I sent my ucas off a few days before the deadline and I got an email about a week later telling me to write this.
but dont stress because im applying for biosci so we're being dealt with by completely different faculties<3
also, before you write the personal reflection, they give you a whole course on how to write it
