What’s the better uni?

I currently live in Kent and I’m picking between Surrey, Chichester, UWE Bristol and Leicester for BSc Psychology.
If anyone has any thoughts on what could be best for me, e.g reputation, night life, accommodation, etc. please share.

Hi there,

To introduce myself I'm Joao. In my final year studying BSc Economics at Surrey University, I am working as a Campus Ambassador for JP Morgan. I recently finished my one-year industrial placement as an Economist for the British Government's Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). I also had the opportunity to work as a Private Secretary to the Minister of Environment and Biosecurity.

In this course, you'll study the scientific evidence of behaviour, mental health and neuropsychological functioning to understand what makes us who we are, how our minds work, and what influences our decisions and social relationships. In your first year, you'll study core areas of psychology and research methods to develop your foundations of psychological literacy. Small group skills tutorials will support this. In your second year, you'll learn about contemporary issues that impact every area of psychology. You'll also complete a module that supports the development of your professional skills, covering placements, job preparation and career options available in the psychology field.

In your final year, you'll study an advanced critical thinking module and select four optional modules to specialize and delve deeper into your areas of interest. You'll also receive supervision from a staff member to conduct your scientific research project, critically evaluating protocols, data and literature. Over the last decade, our employment figures have been among the best in the UK. This was a critical factor in Surrey being named the University of the Year for Graduate Employment in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022.

Finally, the campus is lovely. Surrey is known to emphasize the social life of students and always care about how you spend your free time at university. The student union offers more than 140 societies based on any hobbies and interests students have and clubs for all kinds of sport that a student might want to take up. And even with covid restrictions, the union managed to organize one of the country's most significant covid-safe university events!

If you have any questions about Surrey or uni life in general, please ask as I can help you out! :smile:
