Applied usually means an extra year - possibly in industry - are you happy to do that?

It's not a "double degree", it would be joint honours - effectively two half degrees.

PS. I'm moving this to the Psychology forum.

OK - I was UniKent for Psych - which does have a better rep, to be fair. Brighton has a very positive student rating - tbh, if I had my time again, I would probably go for psych and criminology as I think it is more relevant to areas I am interested in now. (Psychology is broader, but obviously you can specialise, P&C just seems to have more relevance in todays society, to me)

Thanks that’s super helpful and makes a lot of sense what are you doing now if you don’t mind me asking

I don't mind...I moved into high level retail (using psychology to predict/encourage the public to buy various things) then eventually retrained as a Careers Adviser following a Masters Degree in Careers Guidance and Education, ran a Careers Service and then became an Education Consultant. (I am very old but shush, don't tell anyone!)

Depends, if you want to pursue a career in psychology when you graduate you will need to have BPS accreditation. Doing a joint honours degree may mean you won't have that accreditation.

The joint degree does have bps accreditation I checked both do just in case I wanted to pursue that do you think I would have less of a chance of pursuing psychology career if I did joint ?

No - the BPS accreditation is the importnat thing - most Psych graduates don't go into specific psych careers but (and it's a big but) it is a great degree/joint degree to have to be able to argue that you "could" go into many careers!! The understanding of people's thought processes is very helpful....!!
