What uni courses can I do with biology, maths and psychology?

I'm really unsure of what I want to do at uni but i don't really know what my options are other than psychology and a couple of unis that don't require chemistry for medicine

Law, Economics, Maths (at some institutions), Psychology, Politics ...

There's a wide range of degrees you can do.
Beyond the mega-top Unis there are heaps of possible subjects - some examples :

Neuroscience at Sussex - https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/neuroscience-bsc - "A-levels must include at least one from Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics or Psychology."

Biological Sciences at Cardiff - https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/course/biological-sciences-with-a-professional-training-year-bsc - "A levels must include Biology (or Human Biology) or Chemistry."

Anatomy & Human Biology at Liverpool - https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/anatomy-and-human-biology-bsc-hons/entry-requirements/ - Must include A level Biology.

Mental Heath Nursing at City - https://www.city.ac.uk/prospective-students/courses/undergraduate/mental-health-nursing - no specific subjects needed

Dental Hygiene and Therapy at Bristol - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/2023/dental-hygiene/bsc-dental-hygiene-and-therapy/ - must hae Biology

Mathematical Biology (Natural Sciences) at York - https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/courses/bsc-mathematical-bioscience/ - must have Mathematics and either Biology or Further Mathematics

Maths and Acturial Science at Leiceser - https://le.ac.uk/courses/mathematics-and-actuarial-science-bsc/2023 - only essential subject is Maths

Law doesnt require any specific subjects.

Hey,

I am a current 3rd year natural sciences student at Nottingham.
If you are unsure of what to take then it might be worth having a look at natural sciences (each uni runs it differently so just look out for that)
At Nottingham you study 3 subjects in your first year then drop down to 2 in 2nd and 3rd year.

With what you have studied at A level you could take:
Biology, Maths, Psychology, Cancer science, ecosystems and environment, earth science and archaeology.
With some of these like biology and psychology you chose different streams (molecular or evolutionary for biology and developmental vs biological for psychology).

I have left a link below if it sounds like something you might be interested in and if you have any questions just let me know,

With these if you like the uni but not the course listed you can pick that uni and a different course, so maybe find a uni you like and then the course after if you can’t find a course you want to do.

My youngest is in year 12 and has taken Biology, psychology and Geography. She wants to do Zoology or Animal behaviour and welfare. A lot of unis are ok with the bio and psych, but some want a second hard science like chemistry at places like Manchester. Shes chosen to look at Lancaster, Chester, Bangor, Lincoln and Reading.

Chester and Bangor are both very good for these subjects - Chester has one of best Zoology courses in the UK because of its links to Chester Zoo, Bangor has always had a good reputation for Animal and Environmemtal related subjects.

No-one should assume that 'Big Uni asking High Grades' immediately makes them the best Uni for their subject - too many do.

Very true. Shes is not bothered too much on the big unis, or the Oxbridge unis. We have been to Lancaster (as the eldest studies there) and she likes the Zoology course. We have also been to Chester and she had both talks for zoology and animal behaviour and she loved the animal behaviour one best. So far Chester is the top one, with Reading next month and Lincoln in July, Bangor in October.
If the OP likes animals it might be worth considering :smile:

Hi @isabelle04,

Choosing a degree can be really difficult. I found from my own experiences that selecting a subject that you are really interested in and passionate about is key as you will be studying it for the next three years. Also it is worth looking at career paths that you may want to consider going into as they may have certain degree requirements.

At the University of Lincoln all our course requirements are listed under each subject so you can check whether your A-Levels match with what the course will require from you. We are always happy to chat through different qualifications though either through our general enquiries line on [email protected] or our admission teams are happy to help if you have specific admission related questions on [email protected]

Best of luck with your search!!
