Unconditional Places to Full-Time Applicants

Due to the uncertainty around how long the Covid-19 outbreak will last, it has been agreed for the immediate future that we will be offering unconditional places to full-time (not University Level) applicants who apply to SGS College.

Once you apply for your course, you will receive a communication offering you a place.

You just need to accept the offer, if you wish to.

We will then be in touch to discuss the offer once the Covid-19 risk reduces.

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and human behaviour. Psychologists are interested in understanding why people do the things they do and also what causes one individual to be different to the next. Psychologists devise theories which explain and predict human behaviour, and then carry out investigations to find out whether there is any evidence to support them. Throughout the course we will look at a number of different areas of psychological research, such as: how your memory works; how different psychological perspectives explain behaviour; what causes us to form romantic relationships; how to identify, explain and treat mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, depression and OCD; and also how to design and carry out psychological research.

What do I need to join?

At least 5 GCSEs at grades 4–9, including Maths. In addition, you need to have grade 5s in both GCSE English Literature and English Language, as well as one grade 5 in any GCSE Science subject (including GCSE Psychology). An interest in people is also essential, as is an open, analytical and enquiring mind.

What can I do next?

Psychology is a popular course at degree level and it is essential if you are hoping to become a professional in fields such as clinical psychology, educational psychology or forensic psychology. Psychology is useful in areas such as market research, counselling, advertising, human resources and teaching. Psychology is equally well recognised by employers at A-level as it provides students with a number of desirable skills for a wide variety of different vocations.
