    How is the Psychology BSc at Kings College London?

    This is the second year of its running and I am thinking of making it my first choice for my 2017 entry. I have done work experience within the Psychology department of KCL and was almost certain that it would be my top choice.

    After doing research, however, I haven't seen too many Psych graduates talking about it/recommending it (obviously because it's a fairly new course). Not to mention the fact that it is 23rd in the league tables which seems impossible to me as it has one of the leading departments for Psych (if anyone has any reason as to why, please let me know)
    ...so to those who have completed the degree at Kings, how is it? And to those who have just gotten into Kings to do Psych, why did you see it to be the best choice for you?

    Thanks

    I'm currently thinking of making it my firm but they haven't replied back to me and its been nearly 4 months now. I've received offers from my other 4 choices but them... have you received an offer from them?

    Hi, I had received an offer a week after applying. Don't worry, universities dont tend to hand out offers in any specific order of preference so it may just be that they haven't gotten round to yours as yet I also intend to make it my firm, hope you get an offer soon!

    Hi there, Im currently at King's and two of my flat mates are first year Psychology BSc students.

    It's a very demanding and vigorous course however it is rewarding in that King's is one of the leading centres in the world for Psychology research.

    One of my Psych flat mates did a year of Psychology at the University of Nottingham (got a first but realised the university wasn't for him) before starting at King's this year and he tells me that you are pushed. The work load can be hard at times as the first year has a lot of breadth and a lot of extra reading is required to make the most out of your university work but its a well structured course which will eventually make you an excellent well rounded psychology graduate.

    Disclosure; I am a King's graduate.

    "he tells me that you are pushed. The work load can be hard at times as the first year has a lot of breadth and a lot of extra reading is required"

    This is the BEST reason to a degree course, any course, especially a first degree. If they are pushing you, you will be grateful further on in your career. If you think it looks tough and daunting that is another excellent reason to do this course.

    Sorry to sound so pointy-headed, but it's true :-)
