The Foundation Year will allow you to develop your academic study skills and build confidence in your abilities, identifying your own strengths and development needs for progression onto an undergraduate degree.
Business is about organisations, processes and, most importantly, about people. It’s about the inner workings of an organisation; the study of human behaviour within a business environment that can make or break an organisation.
This joint award programme provides various opportunities for you to apply core psychology knowledge within a corporate setting. The course enables you to study business and combine it with the study of human behaviour.
Understanding human behaviour impacts significantly on key business roles such as marketing or human resource management (HRM). How do customers think? How do our families impact our choices of brands and our decisions about where and when to shop? How do we encourage employees to maximise their performance at work, and offer excellent customer service? How do we motivate employees?
This joint business and psychology programme would be an excellent route into marketing or human resources (HR) and business management in general.
The programme is equally suitable for students who are interested in studying Psychology, but who do not see themselves working in a therapy/counselling role but more of an Occupational Psychology route, maybe working in hospitals, prisons or schools. You would apply your knowledge of psychology to an organisation, to support the development and wellbeing of individuals within the organisation.
