Social Sciences (in conjunction with Queen Margaret University)

Newbattle Abbey College

Content

This course is an Associate Student Scheme in partnership with Queen Margaret University. If you are unsure about making the leap from school to university, studying at college can be a good way to prepare yourself. One of the benefits for you may be that you get to study for a year in smaller classes than university. As you work through your HNC, the college will prepare you for the more independent learning style and the academic standards required at university.

This course is available on a residential and non-residential basis.

Subjects: Sociology, Psychology, Politics, History, Philosophy.

Entry Requirements

You will be expected to have 3 Highers at C, preferably in English or social science subjects (Modern Studies, Psychology, Sociology, History, Geography and Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies.)

Students who have successfully completed an SCQF Level 6, including Higher Communication, will also be considered. For mature students, life skills and experience in the workplace may allow entry, subject to availability.

Progression Routes

Students can progress to BSc (Hons) Psychology, BSc (Hons) Psychology and Sociology and BSc (Hons) Public Sociology at Queen Margaret University.
