Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I am going to do Psychology at university, and i am currently taking Psychology, Sociology and ICT as A levels.
    I was wondering if it is important for me to do relevant work experience, because it is so difficult to find for Psychology. Will it be necessary to get into a good university to stand out from the crowd?
    I will be doing an EPQ which will be relevant to a Psychology topic, I have previously volunteered at the British Heart Foundation and I will do some further reading. I really do not feel as though this is enough, can someone please give me their opinion?

    Work experience isnt necessary extra reading is more important

    That's enough, trust me.
