Hi I'm new to the student room, so I don't even know if I'm posting this message in the right place... I'm currently in my first year of college studying Biology Psychology English Language and Maths (I really don't know why I picked Maths!). I'm doing a scholarship scheme with the University of Liverpool (I'm hoping to get into the University of Liverpool)and they, and my college, are advising us to start looking into degrees that we are interested in and to start doing volunteer work/work experience relating to the course.
I'm looking more into something relating to Biology and Psychology more than anything else. I've been looking at the Health and Life Sciences courses, such as nursing, occupational therapy and radiotherapy. I haven't really looked directly into Psychology courses because I was hoping to go into the NHS and do a course that they would pay for at the University.
I'm really stuck on what course to pick and would just like to know more about the Health sciences or any psychology related courses to try and narrow down my decision.
So if anyone is already at the University of Liverpool studying anything I'm interested in could you please let me know more about the course, what it is you're studying and looking into, anything really that will help me make a decision.
Pleeeeease help me!

If you're considering a course that's going to lead to a healthcare profession such as nursing or OT then it's a good idea to get some experience within those careers either through volunteering or shadowing people like your college has suggested. It'll give you a good insight into their job on a day to day basis and will help with your application should you go on to apply for one of these courses.
Another idea is to start going to open days, you'll get the chance to speak to current students at these and have a look round where you may be studying, it helps to like the place as you'll be there for the best part of three years.
