Does anyone know good universities (i.e. Russell Group/1994 group or high ranking for Drama/Psychology) that offer a combined degree course in Drama and Psychology?

You're unlikely to find good unis that offer a combined drama and psychology degree. Why do you want to study psychology? It's unlikely that a drama and psychology degree will be BPS accredited so you will not be able to get onto graduate courses to become a practising psychologist. I'd recommend doing psychology and being an active part of uni drama societies and productions.

Sorry, I forgot to add that yeah, I know Exeter do it, and I think Glasgow do as well, but thanks a lot and yeah I saw Manchester Metropolitan, but that's not very good for either subject is it? That's a good point about it being BPS accredited, I'll need to check that out...

A good place to look for which Unis offer a particular course is - www.whatuni.com BPS Accredited courses - http://www.bps.org.uk/bpslegacy/ac

The advice above about a joint subject degree not giving you professional accreditation is important - this is one reason that RG Unis don't offer these two subjects as a combination. Think carefully about WHY you want to combine these two subjects - if it is just to continue two subjects you enjoy at A Level, be careful. Both subjects will be very different at University (and btw, a Drama degree in any form doesn't train you to be an actor...).

If you are looking for a connection between the two subjects, look at Education degrees (teaching), Youth Work or something like this course at Derby - http://www.derby.ac.uk/courses/creat...apies-ba-hons/ Or you could do a single subject Psychology degree - then get some experience of working with people with Special Needs or Mental Health issues and work in 'Drama Therapy'.

Thanks a lot for the advice and the BPS link, it's really helpful- turns out a couple of RG unis offer that subject combination, but yeah my choice is limited- Exeter apparently has a good Drama Therapy course though!

If a drama degree doesn't help with Drama training, then what does it do? I want to be a drama teacher, but I still think it would be useful to obtain as much training as possible! (sorry I'm replying so late, it's because I only just saw this piece of advice)

'Drama' is not the same as 'Acting'.
A degree in either is an academic qualification not a training in 'how to work in professional theatre'.

It's awkward to add to choices on UCAS, do you remember how you did it?

Hiya, this is a really old thread so it's probably worth starting a new discussion
