    Im really struggling, I dont know whether I should do just Psychology on its own or psychology and criminology.
    Can I apply for both courses? How will I write this in my personal statement?
    Ive written that I want to do psychology and Criminology on my personal statement, should I just write psychology instead? Do universities mind? argh , im so confused
    What do you want to become in the future? Anything to do with cirminology? if not, a single honours degree like psychology would be better.

    I wouldn't waste an application there tbh, you're better than that so realistically you would never be happy if you ended up there. Also, here's Royal Holloway (beautiful campus) https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/crim...sychology.aspx. You should also be ok slipping a grade with Royal Holloway because they're quite known for being lenient on results day... Obvs no guarantee ofc

    I used to want to work with criminals like in Law and Order SVU, but now I have no idea, maybe work in the police as a psychologist?

    Ah, fair enough! That makes sense then! Hmmm, what about

    UWE: http://courses.uwe.ac.uk/C8M9?cpn=71...rc=aw.ds#about
    Exeter: http://www.exeter.ac.uk/undergraduat...logy/psychbsc/
    Birmingham: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergra...sychology.aspx
    Kent: http://www.kent.ac.uk/courses/underg.../49/psychology
    Leicester: https://le.ac.uk/courses/psychology-bsc?uol_r=76b7e94f

    All of those are campuses I believe, and would be much better than de montfort I've left uni now and been working for over three years, and do quite a lot of the reviewing of applications for my company (as a side job) so id really recommend if you have the grades (which you do) to go to the best university you can. You've got to think of it as, if you actually got no offers would you really be happy going there? If the answer is no, then why waste an application to somewhere you will never really be happy, especially if it means you miss an application to somewhere else. I'd take a look at the ones I posted above, all of them are very good let me know if you have any q. Xx

    Completely agree with the above poster on Birmingham. The camous is simply gorgeous and it's a friendly envioronment. I stayed in their accommodation in the summer for a Conference and that was really nice too! I applied with predicted grades of AAB and got an offer (for Political Science & Sociology though)
