I've been thinking about doing a joint honours degree in Psychology and English and am quite keen to go apply to Cambridge. However, I'm not sure if they actually do them. Mainly because as far as I'm aware for Psychology, in the first year you actually do International Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Politics - you can't really do Psychology alone until the second year, if you specialise in it. Is it wise or realistic to do a joint honours when in fact Psychology itself is associated with other subjects in the first year?
Cambridge doesn't do joint honours. Closest you could come would be to do one subject and then transfer into the other (and I don't know how feasible that would be as a plan - they could well just say no).
If there's psychology in the first bit of 'english and education' then there's no reason in principle why you couldn't do part one in that and then switch into psychology (either through PPSIS or through Natsci), but it is very much dependant on you being able to persuade them to let you, and you couldn't guarentee that. I imagine if you only did english, you might have a hard time persuading them of that swap - though i may be wrong, you can switch from philosophy to psychology because you can do experiemental pysch as an option in second year - worth checking out whether you can do that in english...

As TheUnbeliever says, they don't offer it. You could maybe try Oxford?
Just to clarify: Oxford doesn't offer joint honours in English and Psychology either, and unlike at Cambridge, changing tripos halfway through wouldn't be an option because Oxford doesn't have a tripos system. So Oxford would actually be a worse option.
