    So I love both art (writing, and music) and science, specifically psychology and neuroscience. But I can't decide which type of course to take at uni.

    Is it worth taking an arts course at uni? Should I take a gap year before I decide? Any advice on how I should know which course I should take would be appreciated.

    If you're not sure now, then a gap year could be a good idea. If you're really set on both then look at joint degrees.

    Sociology, Psychology, and Applied science. So I know that if I took neuroscience I would need a foundation year.

    Thanks, I'm definitely considering a gap year. A joint degree is something I'm also looking into, but I'm not sure if I can handle that workload. Are joint degrees like taking two full degrees together, or more like two mini degrees?

    It's one full degree but you study can study part of one subject and part of another, so it's the same amount of credits so the workload won't be different, some courses will be 50/50 split or some universities let you do a major and a minor.

    Possibly, I haven't researched music degrees. If I was going to go into the arts side of things, I would probably take a writing degree of some sort.

    you probably can't do psychology, creative writing and music but you can certainly do psychology and one of the two. Off the top of my head keele might do joint degrees that could suit you and there's derby and liverpool hope that will do creative writing with psychology.
