    I found this http://www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_284760_en.pdf but wasn't sure if it applied to MA undergrads. Though I'm pretty the actual psychology course is the same for MA and BSc

    Ah, thank you, yepp, it's the same

    Hi! Congratulations

    For the MA course, you can choose any subject from the Arts:
    Comparative Literature
    Czech
    French
    German
    Hispanic (Spanish, Portuguese)
    Italian
    Russian
    Archaeology
    Celtic and Gaelic (Celtic Civilisation)
    Classics (Classical Civilisation, Greek and Latin)
    Digital and Information Studies
    History
    Philosophy
    Film and TV Studies
    History of Art
    Music
    Theatre Studies

    English Literature
    English Language
    Scottish Literature and Language
    Theology and Religious Studies


    So, a VERY wide choice. But as well as this, you can also pick some subjects from the sciences and social sciences. This depends if the subjects have any timetable clashes at level 2, here's a link which highlights the clashes: http://www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_285050_en.pdf


    From reading the introduction to the college of arts: http://www.gla.ac.uk/media/media_285046_en.pdf I learned that we have to do a minimum of 120 credits in Arts subjects over years 1 and 2. Each course is worth 40 credits. For example I was planning on studying: Psychology, Sociology and History in year 1 and then taking Psychology and History onto level 2 along with level 1 Philosophy which will amount to 120 credits in Arts subjects over years 1 and 2


    Hope I've helped to make things clearer! x

    Just a note about Film and TV Studies, I heard at an open day it's unlikely that students that haven't actually applied to do this course through UCAS, can get onto this course due to its popularity!

    I think Public Policy is within the college of social science!

    Hi there

    Thank you for posting.

    I have a couple of questions, if it isn't too much trouble, firstly, how many days a week on average are most Psychology undergraduates in? Also, how was the first year of the course from your perspective?

    From Rebecca.


    You'll get 3 psychology lectures, a tutorial and occasionally a lab so all in all, not that much. Even with my other subjects I think I was in at the most 4 days a week and the timetable wasn't too heavy within those days anyway.

    First year was good - it's all relatively straightforward stuff so that you have the chance to learn background information and get used to writing essays/lab reports so it's a relatively chilled year!

    No problem! Yeah I've been sitting having a look through the second edition, it's so interesting! Yep I got an A in Higher Geography, an A in Higher Media Studies and an A in Intermediate 2 Maths really pleased with what I got. I'm not 18 during fresher's week so unfortunately I can't drink, but the big fresher's ice breaker in mansion house is on the night of my 18th so I'll be making up for it then! That is really good to hear, ahh it'll be brilliant . Haha! You better believe it, well done, you should be really proud of yourself! xx

I'm sure you'll ease right into it then, no worries at all. Aw thank you, I was quite surprised I done that well, I thought once I got my unconditional I would have stopped caring about my subjects, it's just good to know I still put effort in! xxx

    No I'm staying at home! What about you? I couldn't move out because I'm recovering from an operation right now so I get a lot of physio and stuff and moving out would just be a hassle. Possibly in second year though
