Want to explore the areas of psychology or sociology but not quite ready to study at degree level? The social sciences foundation year provides the perfect introduction to studying this fascinating subject, and will equip you with the knowledge and skills required to progress on to a related full undergraduate degree.
Students will study a range of topics that are central or highly relevant to the study of the social sciences. Youâll explore areas such as mental health and wellbeing, contemporary issues in social sciences, and professional practice to help prepare for undergraduate study.
The course has an applied focus â students are encouraged and enabled to apply their theoretical knowledge to real world problems, such as mental health, psychological wellbeing and everyday problem-solving.
On successful completion of the foundation year, students will be eligible to progress onto one of our psychology undergraduate degrees, which are accredited by the British Psychology Society, or our sociology programme. Students interested in social work can apply and be interviewed for our social work degree.
During this foundation year, youâll begin to develop the academic writing and independent learning skills necessary to study a scientific discipline. Youâll also begin to learn the basics of thinking and writing in social sciences.
Youâll be taught by an experienced team who are accessible and approachable, and ultimately dedicated to providing an inclusive learning environment.
