    Yes. Usually you need at least one science though if you want to do that.

    No. You need a PhD in Geology before you can do an undergraduate in Psychology.

    My friend worked at Mcdonalds and they gave him a free diploma. Yesterday he said he won the Nobel prize for flipping a burger. I don't think I believe him.

    I'd look at an online prospectus or two for the required subjects for where you want to go. There'll be somewhere that'll take you.

    No. Geology is an entry requirement to almost all of the Psych departments in the UK. I believe the only one that does not ask for this is Harper Adams Agricultural University College Newport.

    You can take foundation courses in Geology which can gain you entry, however there is a lot of practical work involved which is obviously quite physically demanding. You need to speak to your GP and see if they can recommend you.

    Try emailing the Geology departments of the universities you're interested in and see if they can fit you into their foundation courses for Psychology Entry.

    It really depends, you'd get in fine to a Psychology BA with english & history, but if you wanted to do Psychology Bsc you'd probably have to take biology next year or something.
