Course Overview

Psychology is a fascinating A-Level where you will learn how cognitive processes influence our behaviour, early attachment, future relationships and brain processes. The two-year linear programme gives you an understanding of both the theory and application of Psychology and prepares you for a number of career opportunities. You will be expected to analyse scientific and mathematical data so an enjoyment of maths is a real bonus!

This A-Level is awarded by AQA.

Year 1 subject content: Social Influence, Memory, Attachment, Psychopathology, Approaches (Biopsychology) and Research Methods.

Year 2 subject content: Biopsychology, Research Methods, Forensic Psychology, Schizophrenia, Cognition and Development, Issues and Debates.
