Yeah I've heard Surrey isn't the friendliest. Reeaaaallly want to go to Roehampton.
That is INCREDIBLE that you didn't have to have an interview, always thought it was compulsory. You must have written one amazing personal statement.
(It took me so long to write mine). I will be very nervous if I get an interview.
Do you mind me asking what kind of previous experience you've had? I've done a few things but none for longer than a year (phone counselling, support work and a voluntary placement as an psychology assistant in a CMHT).
The modules I studied were: Brain and Cognition, Individual Differences, Social Behaviour and Development, Legal/ Cognitive/ Biological/ Applied and Abnormal Approaches to Psychology and STATS!!! I did a joint honours degree, Psychology with Sociology, so I think students who did straight Psychology also did Neuropsychology. These were the modules that Leicester Uni taught a couple of years ago, I don't know about other Uni's.
My only bit of advice for you if do pick Psychology, is to make sure the course you do is BPS accredited. Very simply, it just means that if you want to eventually become a chartered Psychologist you don't have to do a 1 year conversion course after your undergrad degree. Oh yeah and pay attention in statistics lectures. Hope that helps.
