In the first year you will gain a broad understanding of introductory topics in psychology including:

  • Social influence (conformity, obedience and minority influence)
  • Memory (short & long term memory, forgetting, eyewitness testimony)
  • Attachment (caregiver-infant interactions, types of attachment, orphan studies)
  • Research methods (how psychologists conduct experiments, observations etc)

You will also study the various approaches within psychology and realise that no one explanation is enough to fully explain complex human behaviours. You will find out explanations of and treatments for psychological disorders such as depression, phobias and OCD.

In the second year you will develop your understanding of biopsychology, including the nervous system and functions of the brain. You will then advance to the study of several important areas within psychology such as Forensics (criminal psychology), Schizophrenia and Cognition.

Studying an A level in Psychology is highly useful for a wide range of university courses and careers. It will help you understand why individuals in society behave as they do whilst enabling you to develop a broad skill set, including independent enquiry, evaluation, conducting research and analysing data. It is looked upon favourably by admissions tutors and employers.
