AS and A Level Psychology is taken by students doing a wide range of other subjects, but is perhaps especially suited to students with a preference for more analytical subjects such as Maths, Science and History. Students of Psychology go on to do a wide range of courses and careers, with Psychology now being a very popular choice of course in Higher Education. A qualification in Psychology may be relevant to a number of different career options including: market research, advertising, social work, teaching, nursing, the police service and personnel management.
