What are the entry requirements for degree courses?


Entry requirements differ from one institution to another, so it is best to contact universities directly or check out their prospectus.

Applicants often need to demonstrate good numeracy and literacy skills, as well as the ability to handle scientific concepts.

Biology, Mathematics, English; History, Economics and similar arts and social science subjects are all useful preparation.

A/AS level or equivalent qualifications in psychology are not normally required for entry onto an accredited degree. You will find that having a GCSE, A/AS level or equivalent in psychology gives you a head start when you begin a degree.

Many institutions require at least one science A Level. A survey conducted out by the Society’s Psychology Education Board (PEB) discovered that 25% of accredited courses now require or prefer a science A Level.
