Psychology is a well-established department at South Wirral, meaning you can study:
- Psychology GCSE
- Psychology AS Level
- Psychology A Level
If you are thinking about extending your studies at South Wirral Sixth Form, the A Level course complements all you have learned during your G.C.S.E. so you will have a better understanding and background knowledge.
It is worth considering that psychology degrees at a university are very popular, and heavily subscribed. If you are considering this as a higher education option, good grades at A Level are required; the rewards are endless with so many career options to choose.
A Psychology degree opens up many career pathways in areas such as
- Law enforcement
- Armed services
Further studies can allow individuals to become qualified Psychologists in various fields including clinical (treating mental disorders), forensic and criminal (working with the police) and educational (working in schools and with children). There are endless options to choose!
South Wirral High School teaching methods are designed to make the course subjects relevant to the everyday lives of our students.
