Future opportunities

Psychology A level is recognised by all Universities and many past students have gone on to study the subject at degree level. Psychology is especially useful in any field where an understanding of human behaviour might prove useful and opportunities exist, for example, mental health, sport, business and personnel management. As a science subject, Psychology compliments other science A levels, particularly Biology and would support any Science based degree.
