Studying Psychology at BSix
Most people find Psychology a fascinating subject, because it's about us: how our minds work; how we cope with the challenges of life; why we do the things we do; why we feel the ways we feel.
But you must remember that Psychology is a Science subject, so we have to look at hard evidence before we can come to conclusions about the mysteries of the human mind.
Studying Psychology will help you understand more about yourself, and other people, and it will help you to develop your logical thinking skills and your memory (you'll need a good memory to get a high grade!)

Psychology at BSix is special, as any of our students will tell you. You work in a base room with extra computers, and you will find the Psychology students there at lunch times and right up till closing time, researching, discussing and sharing ideas. The whole course is available on the Virtual Learning Environment so you can access any of your lessons from home at any time, and get help from the teacher online.

There's a lot to learn, so lessons are hard work and very focused on all the information you have to absorb. But there are also plenty of opportunities for discussion and to apply what you are learning to your own life situation.
A typical exam question might be:
"Explain some of the differences between short term and long term memory."

Beyond the classroom
If you are interested in progressing to university you can also get involved with the College’s Raising Aspirations programme which will include trips to universities as well as specialist speakers and other events related to the study of psychology.

The skills learnt through studying psychology are transferable to many career routes and could also lead on to a range of humanities based degree courses at university. Graduates might seek jobs in fields such as psychiatric nursing, therapy, police or certain jobs within the business sector.
