Why should you study Cambridge 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 Cambridge A Level Psychology course, your studies will be shaped by four key approaches in Psychology: cognitive psychology; social psychology; learning psychology and biological psychology. Topics also include child development, sleep and dreaming, memory and learning in humans and animals.

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

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!
