    Year 12, taking psychology, sociology and biology.

    I don't have much knowledge about uni yet, but my interests are criminal psychology, forensic psychology, crime and just psychology I guess in general.

    I know psychology includes a lot of science (I'm not a big science fan) but I should be able to cope with it.. but I also want to find a course which can explore my other interests.

    It sounds like criminology (or sociology with a crim focus - some more traditional universities offer crim this way) would suit you. It’s worth having a think about what you might want to do after your degree to make sure you aren’t ruling yourself out of any careers.

    Also get along to a ucas fair and book yourself on some open days for your local universities so that you can get a better feeling about what you’re looking for (and something to compare against).

    Thanks.. I don't feel like continuing sociology but criminology is a good shout, although I'm not sure what the career prospects are like.
