Hey, I just received all of my 5 offers for psychology from Aston (unconditional), Keele (minimum 112 Ucas), Derby (112-120), Loughborough (Distinction BB) and Warwick (Distinction AA but I am normally eligible for a contextual offer, so I am trying to sort that out). I am predicted ABB. I don't know which one to choose


Loughborough is kinda far and I am worried about the diversity, Aston is "too close" to home but a good option as I want to do a placement year, Derby is nice but I am not "feeling "it, Keele is a nice campus and modules look interesting but I haven't heard good things about the teaching and I am worried as it is low in the psychology ranking, Warwick I taught I would never get an offer as due to circumstance I did not get the best GSCE grades but I wanted to try anyway. I don't really know enough about the uni tbh as I did not think I would receive an offer.



Also, I am scared I would not be able to get a B in maths but I am working hard towards that now.



Any advice is appreciated

Which course do you prefer? Have a look at the optional units for each year of each course.

Do any of them have placements as part of the degree? This will add hugely to your graduate CV, especially in Psychology where there are too few entry-level jobs for the thousands of Psych grads beinbg churned out every June.

Is the course accredited by BPS - https://www.bps.org.uk/public/become...pe=UG&status=C

If you have not visted each Uni - look on YouTube for campus tour films.

Hi there,


Congrats on your offers! As to which university to choose for studying psychology, every university is good for psychology as long as the course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). So, make sure that the courses you are looking at are BPS accredited, and if you find any that are not - it is best to exclude them.

Hope that helps!
