Why should you study AQA A Level Psychology?

Psychology is a fascinating area of study. It will help you understand human behaviour and mental processes and allow you to better understand how we think, act and feel.

In this AQA course, this includes child development, individual differences and treatment of mood disorders. You will also be able to draw on your own experiences and those of your family and friends in carrying out research! The aim of the course is to introduce you to the basic theories and research methods in Psychology.

Note that our experienced University Services Adviser can advise on A Level courses and all aspects of university entrance including application support and references. These services are easy to access though our booking form.

Please note, we also have a A Level Psychology CIE Course.

Eglantine - A Level Psychology Student, Mauritius

I spent the evening reflecting on everything and I individually messaged all my teachers saying everything and asking for help. Long messages writing how I really feel about the course etc. and I just really wanted to thank you so much, I have never even heard of such a kind teaching group and such understanding teachers. My old school was nothing like this, and although I can’t see you in real life I already feel so so welcome and I can tell my teachers and I connect in a way. So, thank you for supporting me, it really really means the world. For many reasons I have never really fit in my schools and I love Wolsey Hall! One of my teachers replied to my message already and it really touched me how much you want to us succeed and put no unnecessary pressure on us. I am really grateful you have no idea. Have a lovely evening and don’t worry, I’m getting my working mode on. Just wanted to say your heart for the students doesn’t go unnoticed!
