I have just started writing my personal statement since i only recently decided i wanted to do psychology, and i was writing about how i came to be interested in psychology. I have written about my interest in mental illnesses, but then i realised that i wasnt sure whether that is studied at degree level. (in a course that doesnt include clinical psychology)

If any of you are currently studying psychology at degree level or if anybody else knows, please let me know. Also, if abnormal psychology isnt included, would it be a bad idea to write about an interest in mental illnesses in the PS? Should i change it for another topic area, or would it be ok to leave it in?

I really need an answer so i can amend my PS if necessary.
Thank you

You can check the list of modules for the courses you're applying for on the uni websites. The vast majority will have modules in abnormal psychology/psychopathology/clinical psychology etc, and if this is what particularly interests you then I'd advise you make sure you apply for courses that have some of these modules.
