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.

information

Summary

Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and behaviour. Psychologists carry out experiments and research into why we act the way we do, and students will be expected to learn a working knowledge of the results of this research.

In this course you will study:

  • Cognition and behaviour
  • Memory
  • Perception
  • Cognitive development
  • Research methods and data handling
  • Social context and behaviour
  • Social influence
  • Language, thought and communication
  • Brain and neuropsychology
  • Psychological problems

How will I know how I am doing?

This subject is assessed by two 1 hour and 45 minute exams. Paper one covers cognition and behaviour. Paper two covers social context and behaviour.

What do I need to join?

To enrol on the GCSE+ programme, applicants are expected to have a minimum grade profile of 2/3 in all subjects. Applicants will need to bring a marked piece of work to the interview. Entry tests in maths and English (and science if applying to a science subject) are required. The tests are usually held during the taster day.

Work Experience

You will be required to do a minimum of 36 hours of work experience. This is typically done in a week during term time. The aim of work experience is to provide learners with life experience in writing an exciting CV, to help them discover what full-time employment is like and to help them begin to think of potential career paths.

What can I do next?

A psychology qualification and the skills related to it have uses in many fields, from education, to research, to sport, to business management.

A higher psychology qualification can also lead to careers in counselling or clinical care, as well as in other areas that require a knowledge and understanding of human behaviour.
