    I was looking at entry requirements for Psychology at Aberdeen University and it states a minimum of 120 UCAS points from 2 science subjects. I do Geography, Psychology and Economics. Would my subjects be acceptable? Thanks.

    Some universities/courses accept geography as a science, but others don't. Best thing to do would be to email the admission tutor and ask them!

    I think it counts as a Humanities subject rather than a science But it does depend on the University!

    It depends on the uni. But very competitive uni's tend not to.

    It can be either, actually. Does it not have a list of acceptable Science subjects nearby, as usually there's a list around.

    I would email them just to be safe. It probably will be classed as a science though by them...

    Aberdeen Do count geography as a science sometimes - normally referred to as a social science though

    Hi
    I was also trying to find the answer and I called the uni of LSBU the tutor said in a very diplomatic way "Loosely we count the Geography as a science subject" so there is still doubt.
    est bet call the concerning uni and let us know
    Best
