    I'm wanting to apply for a psychology degree through clearing and i have some uni's in mind that i want to apply for but earlier this year i applied for speech and language therapy and got declined from pretty much every uni.

    I know that speech and language therapy isn't the course for me now and i want to do psychology but will uni's not accept me because i applied for a different course on ucas?

    My expected grades are AAB

    Any advice would be great

    Do you have any idea why the other universities declined you?

    You could maybe write down a few reasons as to why you want to study psychology so you can show the admissions staff that you really would be suitable for the course. I would say as long as you show them psychology is what you really want to study and apply for courses suitable to the grades you get then they should accept you

    I would certainly have a PS for psychology ready to send people

    If you write one then it will help you to formalise some of the things that you will want to say on the phone

    I think it was because i didn't have enough work experience for the speech and language therapy course.

    Thank you i think i'll do that, i'm wanting to become a CBT therapist - that's my reason

    There should be some decent courses for you to have a go at. Of those who have published their clearing requirements so far, Surrey want AAB for Psychology and Warwick only BBB, which looks remarkable.

    Hi Paige-Ashley,

    I cover Psychology Admissions for the University of Buckingham, so thought you might appreciate a bit of advice from a University!

    Firstly, it's common for an applicant to apply through clearing with a different personal statement, so don't worry! At Buckingham, we would request a telephone discussion with the Admissions Tutor to find out more about why you have decided to change subject. For everything else, we would use your previous UCAS application.

    Hope this helps, and if you want to find out more about Psychology at Buckingham (we are open for clearing) take a look at our animation:

    Good luck for tomorrow!
