Psychology Degree Courses

Below are a list of Psychology degree courses and general A-level requirements as printed in each institutions' prospectus or UCAS entry for the academic year 2010. Joint, combined or other courses are not included, so for instance Cambridge is not part of the list as its course is combined. These requirements should give a good indication for prospective students on what Universities they could potentially aim for - but naturally research the Universities yourself as well.

Note lower case letters denote AS level requirements (these are usually simply advantegous, so for Bath University AAA may simply suffice).

See UCAS Tariff for explanations on how to translate number offers into grades.
