I think the ‘best’ university is subjective to each individual, think about what you want from your university experience and make your judgements from that.
personally, I’m going to apply to study psychology at the university of manchester as my first choice as they’re city based, a single site

im in the same boat as you and im probably going to apply to oxford, bath, ucl, st andrews and durham. i'd take a look at a few unis, if you're having trouble finding good ones maybe look at league tables but don't follow them too religiously. there are certain features of each which appeal to me, such as the placement year at bath, so it really just depends on what you want from it

Heyy! I'm currently a psychology student at Warwick and wrote a blog post about things I love about studying Psychology here. I'll link it below for you as it pretty much explains it all, but I can't really say anything on behalf of other uni's as I've had no experience with them, but I would say make sure that the uni teaches you with up-to-date psychological research and gives you the chance to write conduct and write your own mini research reports as research is a key part of psychology. Look at their lab facilities to. Another thing is to look at modules. Whilst BPS accredited courses must cover certain aspects of psychology the content within those modules will differ slightly by uni. Optional modules offered will be very different as well, so bearing in mind that psychology is real broad, make sure that they do offer topics that you find interesting.

I’ve just finished the psychology course at Canterbury Christ church University. I would visit the unis you are interested and go from there. You will get a feeling from each one! I visited a few and then as soon as I walked on to the cccu campus I knew it was for me! Also look at the modules they offer and the specialities of the staff as you’ll want one that has the same interests as you for your dissertation. Also look at how they test you, I hate exams and cccu is mostly course work only 1 or 2 exams a year so it was perfect for me. Feel free to ask me any questions

I’ve applied for royal Holloway and Southampton chose these uni’s because they’re not too far away from me (which was very important to me) but also because I liked the structure of the degree, the flexibility and they also accepted a 4 in maths
