Psychology is defined as the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists study how human beings feel, act and think. They try to find out how we learn, understand, remember and forget things. Psychologists are interested in how we make decisions, why we like some people and not others, what makes us succeed and fail. They study these problems by both observation and experiment. At A level, our Psychology students will do the same.
An A level qualification in Psychology offers an engaging and effective introduction that will appeal to a cross-section of students, regardless of whether they have studied Psychology before. The subject is taught by experienced specialist teachers who use a range of teaching strategies to fully engage all students in active learning and provide a wide range of resources to support and develop their independent learning skills.
Studying Psychology will equip students for a wide range of courses in Further Education, including Biology, Medicine, Nursing, Social Sciences, Management Training, Teaching, Social Work, the Police and Armed Forces.
