    Can someone please help me with picking courses alongside Psychology? I'm slightly confused. Right, so we need to do 120 credits in ARTs over two years. I'm really confused about how much a credits worth, I'm aware we need to take another two subjects along side Psychology but I don't understand why they say we can do a credit in social sciences HELP!

    Each course is worth 40 credits, usually made up of two different classes worth 20 credits each. So we need to do 120 credits each year, but over years 1 and 2 we need to do a minimum of 120 credits in arts subjects. For example if I chose to do: Psychology, Sociology and History in first year that would add up to 120 credits BUT only 40 credits of arts subjects. In year 2, if I carried on with Psychology and History and then chose Philosophy this would add up to 120 credits and also satisfy the minimum of 120 credits in arts subjects over years 1 and 2

    EDIT: So as long as you've done a minimum of 120 credits of arts subjects by the end of year 2 then all is fine, that's why you can do a social science subject ( but I think the way it works out you can only take a class from another college for 1 year because of the way it works out, as we need 120 credits in Arts) I hope I've not confused you even more!

    Thank you so much for your amazing reply! So for example in first year i could do Psychology, history and archaelogy and in second year Psychology, history and sociology? That would equal 120 credits? Your such a wee star! Thanks for the help

    Haha thanks, like me and technology just don't mix well haha! Yep definately tho its more excitement than nerves but I'd be lying if I said the nerves weren't there! So have you got your freshers pass all organised yet? Ohh and I have to ask a silly question here, but when does our course actually start, im sure I read somewhere it was the 14 sep but I dont know if that's true- do you happen to know?

    I think it's been moved because the uni is having problems with Mycampus ( the un website thingy haha). My sister got an email about it- she's in her fourth year. I'm gutted it's been moved, I went to the library today to scan my photo and stuff

    Oh really! Well I'd preferred they took time to fix that then rather than something going wrong while we were trying to register haha!
