I was wondering if a law and sociology ba would be more worthwhile than a psychology and sociology bsc
Or if psychology or law is harder to pass / study
I'm interested into moving on to a social work master however I'm not 100% sure.

I'm currently looking at University of kelee for psychology and sociology bsc and University of Liverpool for sociology and law ba

Be aware that any joint subejct degrees have pros/cons - yes you get to study two subjects, and the connections between them, but you will only do half of the units within each subject that someone doing a single subject degree in each subject will, and this can be frustrating if it means you miss out on a 'favourite' topic.

Also, Psychology at degree level is a science subect. And make sure that the Law/Socio is still an 'LLB' degree, ie. accredited.

Don't take sociology. It has very high unemployment rate and also one of the most regretted degree by some. Since you're interested in social work I would suggest psychology. If you're not wholly into the whole social work you could end up working as a counselor, corporate trainer, HR, or consultant with a psychology degree. Law in itself is a bad idea unless you plan on becoming a lawyer or someone working in a legal firm. Because employability for someone with just a basic law degree is in a sense similar to a psychology degree. But if you're really interested in law then I suggest you going for this one instead. Just know I'm slightly biased towards psychology because I graduated with a psych degree and currently working in HR. But the choice is all on you! All the best!
