Hi, I'm going to apply for psychology at University of Leeds 2019. This university will probably be my first choice if all goes well.

However, a concern of mine is the 'real science'/biological component. I do think I'm able to do this, and I enjoy learning about it, but this is obviously (in my opinion) a little more difficult than, say, social influence etcetera. (The more wordy, theoretical thing is what I mean, I think. The stuff some people wouldn't regard as science.)

Is psychology at Leeds a lot more 'scientific' than other universities? I'll still apply regardless, but it is a concern.

I want to be a clinical psychologist eventually, so I understand that I will have to tackle the hard stuff at some point, not to say that any of this is so simple 😂

My other choices so far are Bangor and Liverpool (where I live). Not sure what to put for the other two choices yet. Any advice would be great! 😊

Any BPS BSc psychology degree will be heavily 'science'/biological due to the nature of the subject. I don't think any degree with the said titles will be more or less on this spectrum.

Thank you
All psychology degrees start from scratch, I'm sure you'll get the hang of it in first year

Thank you very much! I'm entering my second year of psychology A level in September so I should already have a head start on that, thankfully haha. Here's just hoping it all goes to plan when it comes to uni applications etcetera. I'm already getting straight As in psychology, but I've been getting mainly Bs and Cs in biology which isn't great... Although that's partly due to revision/mental health tbh. I know I need to pull myself together this year. I need AAA to get into Leeds, or ABB if I do the access course (which I'm planning to)

Hi guys, I just wanted to know apart from Oxbridge what universities are the best for studying psychology, specifically clinical and biological, not wholly focused on research like Oxford.

Maybe you could consider University of Bath, Loughborough, Durham or St. Andrews

Not entirely true, Exeter for example has a 2nd year very researched based, all you have to do is compare to another university. I chose Durham because of the Exeter 2nd year modules.

Irrelevant, most are the same. And you focus by third year or even masters.
