    Each course will be different. Check ucas.com, and follow through to the institutions' websites.

    My brother did psychology - there was quite a lot of coursework involved but that was at Essex Uni and it will be different wherever you are. There was quite a lot of statistics involved though so you have to not mind doing a bit of maths!

    yeah it is a mixture of things really- maths cos there is stats when analysing your experiments etc....you have to do experiments 'research' and also learn the theory etc...

    it appealed to me becuase it is such a varied course and it covers such a wide area.

    However, it does vary from uni to uni...

    Make sure that the degree you choose has BPS accredication, so if you want to pursue a career as a psychologist, it saves you having to do another year or two!!
