Sorry, I don't know anything about KCL specifically but I have done multiple psychology courses and can answer a bit about that. Psychology courses that are useful are accredited by the British psychological society and they have set requirements for what the courses entail. This included research methods and statistics, cognitive psychology, biological psychology (neuroscience) and clinical psychology among others. It will tend to be a general overview of all psychology areas that can then be specialised later on. Psychology is a science but more of a soft science. I'm afraid I don't know much about bioinformatics to know if it is relevant to that. I can say that from psychology you can go on to business psychology, clinical psychology, forensic psychology, educational psychology, neuroscience, research in psychology, occupational psychology, health psychology, and any related areas. It can feed into many careers and be used to access many areas of study. I wouldn't ever consider the degree a waste but it is worth considering what you want to do and how it will be easiest to get there.

I hope that helps
