Hi im Freya and im in my 1st year of sixth form, I study Psychology, Biology, English Literature and Religious Studies. In my first set of exams ( January 2013) i achieved:
Religious Studies: A
Psychology: B (2 MARKS OFF AN A)
I am currently on an A in my English literature coursework.
I don't know about you guys but university searching/shopping is an exciting prospect for me. I want to study Psychology and my current 2 top choices are University of Leeds and University of Sussex.
University of Leeds : Psychology
University of Sussex : Psychology with American Studies
They both have pros and cons:
I have never been to any of these areas as i live in London, more specifically Essex, but i WILL visit them during open days. I don't necessarily consider distance has a problem.
I have been told by many people that Leeds is a lovely city and the student union is AMAZING as well as the nightlife. These factors would help me settle in nicely. Sussex student union isnt as great but iv heard the nightlife is quite good.Then again, by comparing the two universities for their Psychology Courses, Sussex has amazing feedback from the STUDENTS and obviously the main factor is enjoying the course.Sussex is the only university that interested me with PSYCHOLOGY WITH AMERICAN STUDIES.. as i enjoy essays and would enjoy reading about American history, literature and culture etc (The year abroad is just a bonus)
I enjoy the fact Psychology is a science and american studies is just the cherry on top.
GUYS I NEED HELP!! IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT 'PSYCHOLOGY WITH AMERICAN STUDIES' OR JUST 'AMERICAN STUDIES' AND 'PSYCHOLOGY' IN GENERAL PLEASE MESSAGE ME!!
p.s ANY information about Leeds and Sussex/Brighton as an area would be nice and even more perfect about inside information about the Universities. I am open to all opinions and suggestions.
Is freshers still worth it?
