Ok ok right...

I sent me ucas off for business IT and Business Computing. Wow I didn't think the IT side through well enough.

Wanting to change to business and psychology.

I love psych, very interesting, and business sounds like it will be a nice transferable course to take. I am interested and have a slight business head when talking facts and figures.

What do you think of business studies? Studies? studies? studies?

I know a lot of people poo all over ANYTHING with studies in it.

Any opinions would be great. Don't wanna do business IT...I think I would be bored stiff.

Thanks! Luke.

hey,

have you found a buisness + psychology course. i was looking for something similar for a long time as i want to probably end up in management training or hr related roles. i wouldn't worry do much about studies imo, yes certain people will look down on it but its exactly the same with other established courses like geography etc.

I presume depending on the course you may have the option to take either extra psych or it modules so you may have that flexibility. go for what your interested in and the rest will follow.

Psychology can help massively in areas such as human resources or training. motivational aspects of management. it depends what areas of psychology however as pure psychology so to speak leans more towards the clinical side

Thanks guys.

Well, it's transferable skills. I'm doing it because I enjoy psych, but don't want to go into it for a career so a broad business course will go nicely. I haven't studied business prior to this, but I like to think I have a business mind and believe I'll enjoy it.

Thanks for the replies.

Wow, this is old. I must have only been back here a few times since I asked this question.

And...hahaha business and IT? Couldn't have been further away from what I actually enjoy doing. I didn't even study either of them for my a-levels...idiot.

Anyway, I'm currently in my last year studying psychology with a module in criminology. So happy to have gone for what I thought I'd enjoy most, and can't stress enough how important that actually is.

Thanks for asking. Feels pretty good to be able to say this.

Luke
