    Hi everyone,
    I'm interested in doing a psychology degree and I was just wondering what I could potentially do to improve my personal statement. This is what I do so far:
    ST John Ambulance Cadets
    I have volunteered in a care home and Barnados' charity shop for 100 hours each
    Noise voluntary project
    I listen to psychology podcasts, check the news everyday, watch tv programmes about psychology, read psychology journals i.e. Psychology Review and read psychology books from the library. I am doing my work experience next week on a dementia ward.

    So I was just wondering whether anyone has any ideas about what else I could potentially do e.g work experience ideas etc.

    Thank you x

    Work experience isn't necessary for a psychology degree - the extra reading is far better to write about in your PS
