Are you interested in what makes people tick? Are you fascinated by how we develop throughout our lives from birth to old age and the relationships between individuals and their society? Do you enjoy discovering the mysteries of human behaviour and understanding the complicated emotions we have such as love, joy, guilt and shame? If so, this course will really excite you. You’ll enjoy an interactive learning experience that will help you make sense of yourself and the world around you. We value your own life experiences on this course, and we’re passionate about providing the best student experience. You’ll gain a different outlook on life as well as a range of skills that will equip you for a wide variety of jobs when you leave us. That could be anything from helping those afflicted by drug abuse or mental health issues to taking on a communications role. It will also give you the foundation to embark on further training or study, including a postgraduate degree at UEL.
This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Psychosocial Theory and Practice, but don’t meet the standard entry requirements.
First we prepare you for your degree during the Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.
If you don’t meet the entry requirements for a bachelor’s degree, you can study this course as an ‘extended’ four-year programme. You’ll begin with a foundation year, which will prepare you for a successful transition to the degree course a year later.
