Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. It is an excellent choice for those who are interested in people and their motivation behind different behaviours. Students with an inquisitive mind enjoy the challenge of this new and unfamiliar subject. Once a student begins to study Psychology, their outlook on almost everything changes, becoming more analytical. Students will start to see Psychology in action everywhere they look and learn about theories and that they can relate to own lives, giving them valuable insight.
Once the course starts in September students will be given free access to Year 1 and 2 digital textbooks which will provide the basis to complete the course. Students are expected to undertake wider reading around the course and will be provided with a list of recommended readings.
Good combinations of other subjects to study with Psychology:
Biology, Sociology, English, Religious Studies, Mathematics, Physical Education, Health & Social Care.
