BSc (Hons) Education Studies and BSc (Hons) Education Studies and Psychology

You should apply for these through UCAS as described above, using course code X300 or CS83 respectively.

International Foundation Year

You can apply online in one of two ways:

  1. through UCAS, where the programme code is LMV0 and the University of Southampton's code is S27,
  2. or direct.

The International Foundation Year prepares you for a BSc (Hons) Education Studies, BSc (Hons) Education Studies and Psychology, or related degree at the University of Southampton. It is not a stand-alone qualification. You will be applying in effect for a four-year degree course. You will need to tell us in your application which subject you hope to study at degree level. Please note that this course is not available for students from EU countries aiming for a degree in Education Studies and/or Psychology.
