Course Information

Are you considering a career in psychology but unsure how to begin? Arden University’s psychology degree with foundation year is designed for individuals who are inquisitive and who want to learn more about the human mind and what motivates our behaviour. As well as looking for additional assistance prior to enrolling in a full university degree programme.

A bachelor’s degree in psychology provides an excellent foundation for employment in marketing, social work, journalism, human resource management, teaching, and politics, among other fields. This foundation degree in psychology, accredited by the British Psychological Society, also qualifies you to work in more specialised fields such as child psychology or counselling.

Arden’s foundation year degree programmes provide you with the additional support and assistance you need to get started in higher education and prepare you to confidently pursue your complete undergraduate degree. These courses are an excellent option to enter higher education if you do not satisfy Arden’s undergraduate degree admission standards or if you have not been in formal education for a long period of time and would want to brush up on some key study skills, such as essay writing and research. After completing your foundation year, you will be prepared to begin the remaining years of your psychology degree.
