Studying a BSc in Psychology with a Foundation Year will give you expert scientific training in the relationship between the mind, brain, and behaviour.
The foundation year of this four-year course will introduce you to the key concepts and knowledge you need to progress to the BSc in Psychology. Following successful completion of the Foundation Year, students will progress onto Year 1 of the BSc.
The foundation year (level 3) will be delivered by The College, Swansea University (TCSU). Years 2-4 (levels 4-6) will be delivered by the School of Psychology.
You will study the psychological and neuro-scientific processes that underpin activities such as thinking, reasoning, memory and language, learn about the effects of brain injury, and explore ways to improve health-related behaviour.
You will develop excellent research, written, and critical analysis skills, as well as a high degree of numeracy and ICT ability.
