Hey

So most Universities don't typically require specific A-Level subjects for business degrees etc, however helpful ones may be maths/business:https://www.theuniguide.co.uk/advice...study-business

However, Psychology can be applied to lots of different careers as it is quite broad, for example business/consumer Psychology.

As no set subjects are required, if you are interested in it, there is no reason why you shouldn't pick it! I do Psychology at Uni and I also did it for A-Level and I really enjoy it

Hope this helps,

Hi KawaaiAimiIma

I am a Psychology student looking to go into the business field to. I have secured a placement in the business field, I was worried that studying Psychology would prevent me from a career in this field. However, Psychology can be applied to many different careers such as Business Psychology, Occupational Psychology, things like that. I know a lot of people who are doing Psychology to want to go down a HR or recruitment route so studying Psychology would be helpful. Plus in businesses, it heavily relies around workers, and consumers and by learning how people interact with each other, build relationships is really beneficial for you to know when it comes to a career in the business field.

What other A levels are you thinking of taking? If you was taking Business as well, Psychology would be a good subject to complement it

HI KawaaiAimiIma

Oooo, those seem like brilliant subjects to complement themselves. It would definitely work for a field like Human Resources. Many Psychology students go on to pursue a career in human resources so it would definitely work
