Months of entry
This course is for you if you need to improve your English language skills and subject knowledge of psychology before going on to a Masters course. You improve your language fluency and academic vocabulary, develop your academic skills, and gain experience of western methods of teaching and learning so that you can progress onto a relevant Masters course in our Department of Psychology.
At Essex, you can progress onto our MSc Psychology.
Our Essex Pathways Department offers some of the best routes for international students to enter higher education in the UK. Our innovative courses and programmes have proved very successful with international students and have also attracted UK students because of the distinctive learning environment we offer.
If you are an international student, you may find that the education system in the UK is slightly different from other countries and, sometimes, that the transition to the British system can be challenging. Our courses help you to settle in and adapt to life in the UK.
Alongside improving your academic English skills, you also explore some of the main topics in developmental psychology, including perceptual development, early language acquisition, cognitive and social development.
Our research is challenging and ground-breaking, with 90% of our research rated ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (REF 2014), placing us in the Top 15 in the UK for research quality. We are supported by some of the most prestigious funding bodies, including the European Commission and the Leverhulme Trust.
