I know I want to be a profiler, and I'm studying the right a levels for it, I just don't know which course would be the best/most relevant to take?
I don't start applying until September, but still I'm freaking our a lot

Do you mean a criminal profiler, ie. Forensic Psychologist?- http://www.prospects.ac.uk/forensic_...escription.htm

If you do, you need to look for a Psychology course with Forensic Psych. units within it. Or a combine Psych and Criminology degree. Or you could do a more general Psychology degree and then specialise at post-grad level. Make sure any course you do is accredited by the BPS - http://www.bps.org.uk/bpslegacy/ac

If you do a specialised 'Forensic Psychology' degree straight from school you are restricting your future options. If you start with a more general Psych you will be FAR more employable.

Btw, you won't get a job as 'a profiler' straight out of Uni - it takes years to build up the general experience required, and this field is no where near as glamorous as it looks on the telly......
