It’s pretty much impossible to say as the best uni for you won’t be the best uni for someone else. I used whatuni to help me pick last year and it worked really well.

Congratulations on your grades and it's great that you're looking to take your A levels further to a degree level!
Looking at University websites is a great place to find the course requirements. If you search for psychology on any University website it will have a section for the requirements for the course.
Based on that, you can refine your search to Universities that will accept your grades.
Alternatively, if you go on the UCAS website you can search for universities that do psychology and filter them so that they are tailored to your predicted grades.
Websites such as whatuni and studentcrowd are a good source of information as they provide student's opinions on their courses and their University so have a look at those too.
Good luck with your search and let me know if you have any more questions!

Suggestions - in no particular order - Aberystwyth, Manchester Met, Brighton, Nottingham Trent, Salford, Sheffield Hallam, Plymouth.

Useful reading - especially the bit about applying to 5 Unis with a range of grade requirements : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...ity-rejections

Impossible to say what is the best uni as everybody has different ideas. Do you want to be in a big or small city. Where in the UK are you looking at. Do you want a campus or city uni. These kind of things mean choice of uni is individual. I think you could probably try 2 universities asking for ABB, 2 at BBB and one lower. Universities often make offers to and accept students 1 or 2 grades below their standard offer rates. In the event of getting 5 rejections you can use extra or clearing. There are so many you can look into including Aberdeen, Aberystwyth, Bangor, Bath Spa, UWE, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Keele, Nottingham Trent, Oxford Brookes, Aston, Swansea, Sheffield Hallam, Northumberland, Liverpool John Moores, Brunel, Kent, De Montford, Bradford etc.

Congratulations on your grades! Well done
It's a good idea to have a look at some universities' websites to see what modules they offer and what are the entry requirement. At Bangor we look for 80-128 tariff point, you can see more about the Psychology course here.
If you would like to speak to our current students and staff you can do so via our Unibuddy platform, they can tell you exactly what it's like to study at Bangor.

Please let me know if you have any questions at all, I would be happy to help

Hi emxx2969

Good luck with your A levels! if you were applying this year you would need to apply through Clearing once you have your grades in which you can phone us on 0808 164 4444. With Psychology, we do ask for one science subject at A level but if you got the grades you are predicted we could offer you a provisional offer. We also have open Psychology with Clinical Psychology and Psychology with Forensic Psychology if you want to look at them here!

For any enquiries about the University of Lincoln, you can ask at [email protected] or you can chat with a student of ours here!

Hi there,

Congratulations on your grades! When deciding on the best university for you it's important to figure out what you're looking for in a university. This may include rankings, social activities, clubs and societies, proximity to a major city, placement year, graduate jobs, accreditation, student satisfaction, etc. There are also some useful websites that help you compare universities such as https://www.theuniguide.co.uk/ and https://www.whatuni.com/degrees/courses/.

For the psychology degree at Aston the A levels requirements are:

ABB in any three A Levels.
BBB in any three A Levels plus grade B in either Core Maths or Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
BBC in any three A Levels for contextual offer students.

The course at Aston is accredited by The British Psychological Society (BPS) and will provide you with a highly transferable skill set to help you stand out from the graduate crowd. With a BPS accreditation, you’ll also have the qualifications you need to go into clinical, educational, or occupational psychology. You’ll benefit from a broad curriculum that emphasizes human behavior and real-life applications of psychology and get the exciting opportunity to put your skills into practice through a placement year in the UK or abroad.

I hope this has helped

Hi emxx2969

My names Callum, and I'm a 3rd year Business and Management student at the University of Lincoln

Our Psychology degree aims to offer a broad and thorough foundation in psychology, exploring the science behind how we think, act, and respond to others through a range of topics. You will have the opportunity to learn through a combination of theoretical, lecture-based teaching, small group seminar discussion, and practical experimentation. The course aims to enable students to develop their knowledge of psychology and their ability to design, conduct and assess independent research projects.

We also have a work experience option that Lincoln has strong links with both local and national organisations and while students will be responsible for organising their own work placement year, support will be available from a specialist academic tutor alongside the University's Careers and Employability Service. This will be fantastic experience to gain and would stand out on your CV very well!

Please feel free to have a look at the degree page by clicking ME , also you can speak to one of the course reps via UniBuddy by clicking me

Hope this helps and please feel free to reply if there is anything else we can do to help

Goldsmiths might consider you with those grades and do have some psychology courses I believe. Might be one to explore (although I understand the location leaves something to be desired?).
