Psychology A Level
Studying Psychology at South Devon College will introduce you to some of the ways in which the human mind and behaviour have been explained.
In the first year you will learn about the biological, cognitive, behaviourist, positive, and psychodynamic approaches in psychology, together with the various research methods that are used to investigate the brain and behaviour.
In the second year you will learn how some of the approaches have been used to understand addictive behaviours, criminality, and schizophrenia.
A degree in Psychology can lead to careers in clinical, educational, health, counselling and occupational pychology, or would be generally useful if you are planning on a career which is very people-focused, for example working as a police officer or social worker.
- You must have 5 GCSEs at Grade 4(C) or above
- Grade 5 in any two of the following: English, maths, and science

I progressed from studying the Applied Law Diploma to study the FdA Law at University Centre South Devon. It was such a rewarding decision providing me with the first steps into my career and the tutors were amazing, helpful and insightful.Jasmin Arthurs
