I'm starting my UCAS application and i'm really stuck between which 2 courses to apply for. What degree would be best to do in uni; Psychology, Business Management or Business & Marketing?

I do enjoy the Business aspect and i'm also interested in the behavioral side of Psychology. However I don't want to complete a degree and spend money on a degree I won't be likely of getting a job at the end of. Additionally, is it worth doing these courses or are they considered "useful degrees"?

Thank you in advance for any help given.

Depends on whether you are looking forward to a professional career in psychology or a career in business. If you are not heading to a professional psychology career, then any one will get you into a business related job.

Same problem here. I'm choosing between international management and psychology.
I'm afraid if I'm not capable in studying psychology as I have never studied before, whereas Management gives less choice for career.

I've decided to study Business and Marketing Management. I did a lot of research and there are many career options Business and Marketing can take you into, whereas with Psychology you need to further education on it to develop. Plus I'm doing a subsidiary diploma in Business in my current a levels so I can have a taste of whether I would actually like to study it. Good luck on whichever you choose!
