Hi! So i'm torn between choosing psychology or biology to do as a degree at uni. I love the human side of biology and I love the social aspect of psychology. I don't really know what I want to do after uni so this makes it a bit harder, and I'm only in Y12 now so I have a lot of time to think but I was just wondering if anyone else has had the same problem as me and which one they chose/why. I've looked at human biology and psychology joint degrees but the closest unis are 6/7 hours away and it's just too far to travel. Thankyou hehe

Psychology limits your options - there are currently far too many psych. graduates for the jobs available, and its a 'niche' area that will narrow your career opportunities in other areas.

Biology/Human Biology/ Health and Social Care etc, OR a joint subject degree, will leave many more career pathways open to you. You can specialise within those degrees/pick appropriate Units, and still study areas that interest you.
