Have a look on the league tables and see if any ones take your fancy.

I'm a psychology student at University of York, and I would highly recommend checking out department! We're consistently in the top 100 psychology departments in the world in the QS World University Rankings.

Looking at your choices you seem to be looking at the west coast so options might be looking at Lancaster and Swansea. If you are looking at very good grades try Bath

You need to check if its a social science or a science based course - all Unis are different - and work out which one suits your interests best. Also,check that the degree is accredited by the BPS (https://www.bps.org.uk/public/become-psychologist).
Its also worth looking at joint subject degrees - many are BPS accredited and this gives you other potential career pathways.

I’m not sure yet because we get our AS results on the 14th of August so then I’ll have a better idea of what to expect for next year

North Wales about an hours drive south from Bangor, it doesn’t necessarily have to be that close to home id just prefer it, but if I really like a uni that’s further I would definitely still apply

That puts you somewhere in the Porthmadog area. Trains are non existant there. There is a bus service linking Bangor and Aberystwyth. At Aberystwyth there are hourly trains to Carmarthen where you can get a train to Swansea or Cardiff. From Aberystwyth there are trains to Shrewsbury or Crewe where the connections go to London through Birmingham. The North Wales coast trains link to Manchester or London although I think there is also a service from Holyhead to Cardiff. Universities you could consider are Manchester, Birmingham and Aston for bigger cities. Keele isnt far from Crewe if you would like a smaller more rural environment like you are used to. Lancaster is an out of town university on a nice campus an hour from Manchester although you might change at Crewe. Swansea and Cardiff are worth looking into. Bath and Exeter are very good universities with nice campuses in smallish cities although a lot bigger than you are now or Bangor and Aberystwyth.

Hi Catrin Baum,
I'd like to vouch for Lancaster!
There's 2 open days in September if you'd like to visit and get a feel for it.
One of my close friends does Psychology and other than being 9th in the league tables for Psychology, I know that she enjoys it a lot. One element that's unique is that in first year you get to study a minor. My friend did Crimonology, which widened her skills and is something unique to other graduates across the country. I know it can be hard work with reading and essays etc but she's still had lots of time for extracurricular. I also know that she's started working on her third year research project which is pretty cool.
Let me know if you have any questions!

Yeah I’d get a train from Bangor because I’d get a lift there and back

Lancaster would certainly a great option for you. A fantastic university. The quickest journey just under 4 hours with 1 change at Crewe. It is a really nice campus university a couple of miles out of a smallish town. Given where you come from you need to decide whether you would like to live in massive cities like Liverpool, Manchester or Birmingham or smaller places like Aberystwyth, Bangor or Lancaster which is a bit bigger but not huge. Other campus universities in smaller towns would be Bath and Exeter although they maybe some distance and time away. Unfortunately living where you do wherever you go will be hours away
