The Course

If you like to know what makes people tick and why they behave the way they do, then Psychology is for you. Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour. It is the study of what people (and animals) do and why they do it. Psychologists also try to use their understanding to help people with difficulties, and to bring about change for the better in fields such as health care, education and industry. This A Level course consists of three units over two years of study. The three units are sat at the end of the two years and consist of: Unit 1: Introductory topics in Psychology. This includes the study of Social Influence, Memory, Attachment and Psychopathology. Unit 2: Psychology in context. This includes Approaches in psychology, Biopsychology and Research Methods (including, the scientific process, data handling and inferential statistics). Unit 3: Issues and Options in Psychology. This includes Issues and Debates in Psychology, Gender, Schizophrenia and Forensic Psychology. Why Study Psychology? Tutors are enthusiastic, caring and supportive and use a variety of techniques and resources to make learning interesting and challenging. We aim to give you some fundamental and interesting insights into behaviour and thought processes that will help you cope with the challenges of life, both for yourself and those you come into contact with. Psychology is also one of the most sought after qualifications by a range of employers and will open the door to many careers.

Psychology is a very widely recognised A Level subject. Many of our students go on to study Psychology in HE, and have careers in the medical or scientific field, whilst others go into forensics, psychiatry or education. There are many employment opportunities for people with Psychology qualifications, although to become a practising psychologist in, for example, health, education or industry, usually requires a degree in the subject.
