Courses We Support

OUPS aims to support all the compulsory OU modules for the named BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology. In previous years we have supported the modules with exam components at Level 2 and Level 3, as well as other modules related to mental health. As the degree format is currently changing we are adapting our coverage to suit and as we gain an understanding of the material in the new modules.

We do not support some of the non-core modules, and whether we are able to provide courses or events that help with some modules depends on a number of factors, such as whether number of students who are interested makes this viable.

The current degree structure includes the following modules (last updated September 2021):
