Program overview

In this top up year you'll take part in academic debates, gaining an advanced understanding of the central areas of psychology. You’ll select advanced topics that reflect your own specialist interests and undertake a comprehensive piece of research as your final year project with the support of your academic supervisor. You will maximise your learning with a personal tutor assigned throughout your studies to provide the support and guidance you need to get the most out of your course. You’ll immerse yourself in an innovative and imaginative curriculum continually shaped by the latest developments in psychological research. You'll also be able to get your hands on everything you need for your own research. As this is a 'top-up' course for FdSc graduates only, it is not available during Clearing
