    I actually want to study Psychology, I think I'll find it interesting, but I want to be proseprous in life too...

    I am also not that good at mathematics, or at least I'm not confident enough to do study which involves mathematics. I could do a Finance degree at a university like Durham or Manchester. In fact I had an offer to do Accounting & Finance at Manchester last year, but I didn't take it due to fears that it isn't a good enough degree at a good enough university to get me a decent City type job like in investment banking. I was heavily misguded. I'm still not that knowledgeable.

    I care a lot about which university I go to. With Psychology, I could aim high. I could do an Access to HE in Psychology course starting in September and go for Cambridge's Psychological and Behavioural Sciences degree. I could also go for and be happy with doing a Psychology degree at universities like Manchester, Bristol or Durham.

    However, I wouldn't necessarily want to do Psychology as a career. I'm aware most Psychology graduates don't work in Psychology.

    I would definitely want to take my studies further than a Bachelor's degree, for fulfillment, wanting to remain a student for as long as I'm able to, and for better job prospects.

    Could I considering these feelings go for a Psychology BSc, then aim for a MBA or a Finance Master's if that's possible?
    Worth asking the non-psychology forums on this question. I'm not sure it really matters what first degree you have for many city type non-quantitative jobs - so with that regard it would matter more where and how well you do in your MBA, and your relevant work experience.
