Psychology: A' Level 

What makes us think, feel, behave, as we do? How do we learn? In what ways are we all the same? In what ways are we all different? How does our nature interact with our experience to produce unique individuals? Do we have any free-will or is everything determined by inheritance and experience? You will find answers to these questions and many more if you study Psychology. You do not need to have studied Psychology before to do well on this course. You will need to have an interest in people and an open mind about what makes us the way we are.

What can this course lead to?

Psychology teaches you skills for life. You may or may not choose a degree or career in Psychology, but either way what you learn on a Psychology course will equip you for a range of degree courses and occupational settings
