I would recommend the straight course as it will be accredited, I don't think any applied course is.

I've just checked a couple of applied courses and they are accredited. I think the main difference is that they will focus a bit more on areas relating to specific fields of work (i.e forensic, occupational, clinical, etc.). Whether that is good, bad, better, than straight Psychology, I have no idea.
But do check if the particular course you look at is accredited.
