BSc Psychology / Application and selection

Year of entry: 2023

How to apply

Apply through UCAS .

How your application is considered

Applications are considered on the basis of the UCAS form. Candidates may be interviewed online or by telephone, or asked to complete an alternative admissions statement.

Applicants whose personal statement is specific to a different discipline

Because of the high volume of applications we receive, we will not consider those applicants who choose Psychology as a second option and whose personal statement is geared towards a different discipline.

However, if you find at a later stage that you have not been made an offer for your chosen area, please contact our admissions team for advice by emailing:

Returning to education

Applications from those who are returning to education are encouraged.


Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Requests for deferred entry are granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and are normally granted for one year only. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date.

Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications

If you are resitting your A-levels we will reconsider your application provided you have obtained a minimum of BBB (or equivalent grades) at first attempt. Applicants whose first attempt grades are below BBB (or equivalent grades) may be automatically rejected.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.

In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.

If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing, the places will be subject to availability.
