Hello Psychologists!

Thanks to paradoxicalme for putting together another really useful post

The official Clearing website for Newcastle University is available here and we do expect to have some places on our Psychology BSc (and also some for Joint Honours in Biology & Psychology, Mathematics & Psychology and Nutrition & Psychology). The list is provisional right now but you can register for alerts to get updates Image

Our standard offer for Psychology is AAA-ABB, and lower offers are usually given to people with science/maths A Levels. During Clearing the majority of courses will have places for people who achieve ABB or above Image At a minimum, you'll need a B in GCSE Maths plus a science subject.

The Newcastle University forum will have a stickied Clearing thread going up soon and posts from this official account come from me (a recent Newcastle Uni graduate) and Christina (current Newcastle Uni student).

If you have any questions about Newcastle just let us know Image



Our final list has gone up and we have places available for:

We also have a January start if you want to take some timebefore coming here.

Our two-year undergraduate degrees are cost-effective compared to three-year degrees and also mean you'll graduate faster and also our excellent student to staff ratio means you'll get lots of time with our lecturers.
