This course has been designed specifically for mature students who do not have the relevant qualifications for entry to higher education.
You will attend college four days a week between 9.30 and 3.30.
You will be assigned a personal tutor who will support you with studies and personal development.
Good time-management skills are necessary as assessment of the course is on an on-going basis.
The curriculum is structured so that core units are delivered together with the cohorts of the other Access courses in the college. The specialist psychology units are delivered to the psychology students separately. There are weekly tutorials where one to ones take place and you set your own targets for the development of specific skills and knowledge, including completion of the UCAS process. All resources, assignments are available on the Google Classrooms for your use and specific resources for eLearning sessions are updated weekly.
This course includes the following units:
You should have a minimum of GCSE English and Maths at grade C or above. You will also be invited for an Advice & Guidance interview with the tutor.
If you do not meet the entry requirements, we would advise you to consider enrolling on our Pre-Access to Higher Education course and the IGCSE English Language.
This course is assessed in a variety of ways including presentations, discussions, tests, projects, practical work, problem-solving exercises, essays, scientific reports, diagrams.
This course would provide an appropriate qualification for you to progress to study Psychology (or a related subject) at University. If you have a specific degree course in mind, we recommend that you check the entry criteria with their Admissions Tutor.
