Studying your A-Level

A-Level Psychology is an opportunity to delve into the human mind and explore, and understand, why we behave the way we do.

Psychology is one of the most interesting and pioneering fields in the world, especially with greater awareness and importance being placed on our mental health. It has never been a more interesting time to learn how the human mind works.

During your studies you will develop an understanding of key psychological concepts and theories. You will examine ethical issues, analyse and interpret psychological concepts and evaluate treatments.

Your A-level Psychology will also include Biopsychology, Psychopathology, Memory and more.

Designed in line with AQA syllabus, this recognised qualification will help you work towards your academic and professional goals.

You still get the academic support from your dedicated tutor. They will provide advice, guidance and feedback on your assignments. This allows you to progress in a structured and positive way.

You can start learning from the moment you have enrolled with us. We don’t have term times, just an online portal with all your course material ready and waiting. The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

That means you can get your A Level in psychology as quickly as you choose.

Frequently Asked Questions

A-Level Psychology is an in-depth exploration of the fascinating world of the human mind, diving into areas like memory, emotions, social influences, and even mental health. By studying psychology at A-Level, you'll develop critical thinking skills as you analyse research, conduct experiments, and learn about different psychological approaches. It's not just about memorising facts – it's about understanding the complexities of human experience and gaining valuable insights into yourself and the people around you.
A-Level Psychology in the UK is a springboard to a diverse and fascinating range of study programmes and careers. The academic routes you can take include psychology degrees, where you’ll dive deeper into specific areas like clinical, forensic, or cognitive psychology, opening doors to fulfilling professions like therapist, researcher, or even consultant. Alternatively, you could branch out into sociology, criminology, or even neuroscience, expanding your knowledge and career options. There are also many other professional paths you can take that will value this A-Level. You could utilise your understanding of human behaviour in roles like social worker, counsellor, or youth worker. Your critical thinking and communication skills will be highly valued in fields like HR, market research, and advertising. Forensic psychology skills are also in demand for roles like police officer, probation officer, or even legal advisor. Please note that you may need additional qualifications to qualify for these roles.
Generally, A-Level Psychology is considered moderately challenging. The course involves a mix of scientific principles, research methods, and the study of human behaviour and mental processes. It's light on maths compared to other science subjects, but students are required to grasp complex theories, analyse research findings, and apply critical thinking skills. It's not a breeze, but the high pass rate suggests accessible content and strong support. Success in A-Level Psychology often relies on effective time management, a solid understanding of psychological concepts, and the ability to articulate ideas coherently in written form.
No, you don’t need any GCSEs to enrol on our online Psychology A-Level course, though they are beneficial. It is important to be aware that if you intend to pursue university admission, GCSEs or an equivalent Level 2 qualification will be required. We offer these qualifications as well, so feel free to discuss with our team how we can assist you in meeting the university entry requirements upon enrolling in this course.
