    I was previously studying Asia Pacific studies in 2015 however after health reasons I had to leave. Now feeling a bit better I am hoping to start a psychology course in 2017 but I am worried that I might be the only one with no prior knowledge of psychology. (I wasn't allowed to study it in college). Will the course be suitable for students with no psychology knowledge or is some knowledge needed?

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm doing psychology now. To be honest, a lot of it IS common sense, like applied and social psychology, but there are a few modules which will need you to get your head down on, like the ones you have to do labs in and cognitive psychology etc. I wouldn't say you need prior knowledge, just do your research and you'll be fine good luck!
