    I applied through clearing and I've got unconditional offers from 3 uni's: Birkbeck college for Bsc Psychology, University of Roehampton for Bsc Psychology and London South Bank for Bsc Psychology with Clinical.

    I want to go on to do a professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology after my Bsc and Birkbeck has supposedly one of the best psychology research departments in the country. It also has a better rep and is part of the University of London. :cool:

    I don't know much about Roehampton. :confused:

    South Bank teaching is supposed to be very good and I've heard that the teachers are very helpful and actually care... I don't know if this is unique or not. Also the the course is tailored to the course I want to do after but the difference is only in the final year modules. I've also heard that the student union is not very good here... :rolleyes:

    If anyone can give me more information... All advice is welcome.

    Thnx in adv.

    I'm no expert but I would say out of those three, Birkbeck sounds like your best option in terms of reputation etc, if thats important to you?
    If you don't know much about Roehampton then I guess it's difficult to know for sure and I'm sure there are good teachers at Birkbeck and Roehampton too!

    Sounds like Birkbeck to me too. Good luck with that.

    If your CV passed across my desk I would be considerably more impressed by a degree from Birkbeck than either of the other two.

    I would say Birkbeck as they are most likely to have professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology qualification for you to progress on to. And it is easier for to get it if you already know the lectures and they have good opinion of you
