Top 5 Universities to study Psychology


University of Cambridge

Cambridge is definitely the place you want to go to study Psychology, battling with Oxford for the top spot on every UK league table. 

Founded in 1209, the University takes great pride in its BA Psychological and Behaviour Science degree. As stated on their website, the course gives you the opportunity to study “cognitive, social, developmental and biological psychology within the broader context of the behavioural sciences.”
Most conditional offers require A*AA at A-Level (or equivalent), but the college has the discretion to make non-standard offers where appropriate.
During the 3-year degree, teaching is provided through lectures, classes or seminars, and supervisions, with lab hours when necessary. The course is accredited by the British Psychological Society, the first step to becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

 Applicants will be asked to attend an interview and may be asked to take a Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA). UCAS deadline: Mid-October Giorgia Guantario

University of Oxford

Second, but not any less prestigious, comes the University of Oxford. Oxford offers a wider range of choices to pursue your career in psychology. In fact, it can be studied on its own as a BA in Experimental Psychology, or along with philosophy and linguistics as part of the BA in Psychology, Philosophy and Linguistics. Just like Cambridge, Oxford requires a minimum of A*AA at A levels or equivalent. Oxford prides its degree on the prospect of a substantial amount of practical work and experimentation, rather than just lectures. In fact, even though the degree is classified as a Bachelor of Arts, the course is taught as a scientific discipline. The course is accredited as conferring eligibility for the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership of the British Psychological Society, given that a minimum of a 2:2 is achieved throughout the three years of the course.

 Applicants are required to sit Admissions Tests, usually held in October.
 Applicants will also need to attend an interview.
