TSR really specialises in UK unis, is this for the UK and are you studying in the UK or A levels?
You need to do more research into drama and psychology and check whether a course where you can study both exists (am not sure it does).
I am not seeing the logic behind doing a joint course as I expect you should do one or the other.
You should also be paying some attention to what career you are going to chase afterwards.

well for what i want t do in the future it would be drama, but as far as i know acting is not a job that will fund me monthly which is why i would need another job, for that i want to go into something to do with psychology/ psychiatry. im also studying in the UK and about to go into college. but i just want to see what uni options are available for me

Psychiatry is a medical specialty. You cannot become a psychiatrist without doing a medical degree. People go into acting without drama degrees (or even any degree) reasonably often. Conversely, it is not possible to become a clinical psychologist without a BPS accredited psychology degree. I would note clinical psychology is a fairly long training process and quite competitive as I understand. I don't get the impression they are paid enormous wages either. Make of that what you will.

Ultimately most people go into a career unrelated to their degree subject, and most graduate roles don't require any specific degree subject to go into them - ranging from business, financial services, and media roles, to even some e.g. software development roles consider applicants without a specific background in CS.

I would recommend you research your career options somewhat more and understand what is formally required of each, so you can make an informed decision.

Use this link to find courses.
I think acting then people are unemployed 80-90% of the time.
I believe psychology is very oversubscribed and you have a very small chance of actually using it in a job and its a poor choice for employment prospects.
You can search uni courses here.
If you are amazing at acting and see it as a passion or vocation then get in somewhere decent. It is a risk.

the reason i do want another course i can do is because i already took into account that acting, especially my feild live and musical theater, is a very on and off job, thank you for the link

Hi between Royal Holloway and Queen Mary which is better from the point of view of employment for an International Student. I ain't looking for comfort. I find the syllabus almost same. I would be grateful if u could give me some inputs. I need to take bank loan and the rates are steep in India and need to get a job immediately after MS. Thank u very much.
