From my research, I would say obviously Cambridge, Oxford, and then Bath, KCL, UCL, Bristol, St Andrews all rank quite highly for Psychology

Just search league tables where you can see student satisfaction etc.

I don't think you'll get particularly helpful answers on a forum as opinions will swap and change from person to person.

Think about what's important to you (city/rural life? what wider opportunities do you want access to in the area you'll live? what types of things do you want to study as part of psychology - use this to filter out unis from modules offered etc.) THEN look at league tables if necessary.

Personally, I think a busy, built up area like a city is favourable as there will be more potential for work experience opportunities.... but then there's also a lot more competition which balances it out.

Depends somewhat on what you're looking for in a psychology course. Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, UCL, and KCL all have fairly notable psychology departments as I understand though. However all of them generally focus mostly on psychology as an experimental science, at least in their undergrad degrees. If you are mainly interested in e.g. clinical psychology then other universities might cater to that interest more.

I agree with Emma.
Some other suggestions would be Cardiff, Edinburgh, Warwick, and Birmingham.

I probably would be more interested in clinical. Do you know which ones that would specialise more In Them?

I've heard Royal Holloway is great. I know someone who studies psychology there and they say the lecturers are amazing and the community is lovely.

If you are interested in clinical psychology, it would be great to choose a course that has a placement year.
