    Most of the courses seem really scientific and I'm not sure if that's what I want to do.

    Psychology is a really scientific subject though. Maybe look into a BA, it won't be accredited though so you're limited in psych grad jobs.

    Bath's course seems interesting!

    My psychology teacher went to Exeter so I could ask her about it.

    I'm most interested in forensic psychology, criminal psychology etc.

    Oh wow that's amazing I'm planning to go to Exeter as well, for a different course though.

    You can get some BA courses which are fully accredited, like the one offered by Lancaster and Essex

    Yiu could always try psychology with criminology or something like that for a bit less science? But psychology is a science, so you'll never get completely away from that especially since it's better to be accredited. Have a look at what optional modules are offered later in the courses, generally you'll want social ones rather than cognitive/neuro if you don't want science. It'll also give you an idea of what sort of research interests the lecturers have there.

    I'm not 100% against science, I do biology at A-Level.

    I just prefer to focus on other aspects of psychology, although I'm starting to understand that science is a fundamental part of the course.

    Ah okay, yeah it is a big part of it, and much more so than at A level or what people expect. That said, it's also nothing like the science you do in school so I wouldn't worry too much. Have a look at some courses and see what you think
