    I'm interested in studying these two subjects at university as a joint honours or major/minor degree but I'm having trouble finding universities that can offer this. I have found 2 good ones so far, but others aren't so good (according to league tables). I'm also wondering how much I should rely on the league tables in my decision of where to go?

    Don't bother with league tables unless you're looking at somewhere terrible. Pick courses that are interesting to you.

    Remember degrees like Natural Sciences (e.g. Cambridge and Durham) can easily follow a biology and psychology pathway (that's what I did).

    I found several more courses:

    Top unis
    Newcastle: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/undergraduate/d...courseoverview
    St Andrews: http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/courses/...PS/year/2014-5

    Lancaster: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/study/und...bsc-hons-c1c8/

    Lower ranked

    Plymouth: https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/u...-human-biology
    Derby: http://www.derby.ac.uk/biological-sc...joint-honours/
    Worcester: http://www.worcester.ac.uk/journey/b...-bsc-hons.html
    Bath Spa: http://www.bathspa.ac.uk/schools/sch...ogy/psychology

    Don't totally ignore league tables. If you think Bath Spa is as good or will do as much for your career as Cambridge, you are deluded.

    Newcastle offers this course and looks like a good uni.
    Best of luck! 😀
