Good advice on How to Choose Firm and Insurance : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...urance-choices. Also worth looking at Campus Tour films and tourist films for each place on YouTube.

Here, for instance is Bristol -

Hi! I am a psychology undergraduate from HK too.

I would advise you to go to their university website and see what the campus and city are like, what career and academic support they give, and possible scholarships/bursaries you might be eligible for. Equally important is to look through their psychology course page and see if you like their modules and content.
Additionally, it would be useful to make a spreadsheet and rate each university on different benchmarks, so you can make comparisons easier.
Also, don't hesitate to talk to current students/alumni to get to know more about those universities.

*Feel free to message me if you have any further questions

Hello, congratulations on getting a conditional offer at the University of Birmingham!

My names Beckye and I am a final year student studying Social Policy and Sociology.

Our BSc Psychology undergraduate is accredited by the British Psychological Society, this gives you eligibility for a graduate membership, provided that the minimum standard of qualification of second-class Honours is achieved.

Also here are some undergraduate students of psychology talking about their experience: https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools...ate/index.aspx

If you have any questions in relation to university life or accommodation please don't hesitate to contact me!

Hi there

It's a very difficult decision choosing what university to attend, however some tips I have is to look closer into each course, the modules etc. From there, have a general idea of what course you like better, what modules appeal to you more. You can also look at the university itself, compare the universities based on facilities, support or literally anything you think is important to you for a university to have, You can have a look at accommodation or the town. That way you are taking into account many factors that may help you decide. I would also suggest speaking to your family and friends about each university and see which one you're more passionate about when speaking to them. Have you had an opportunity to watch YouTube videos about the different universities? You may be able to find tours of their psychology department or the university

I hope this helps,


Becca (2nd Year Psychology Student)
