    Welcome, @alice21 ! I hope to be in a similar situation to you education wise one day! Advice on steps you took during college years to get onto a psychology degree would be appreciated :)

    Thank you everyone:)

    @katieelouise I’d love to help! I achieved all of my GCSES which led me into my chosen college. I then completed an A -level in Psychology at college. This then led me to a BSc (hons) degree at Edge Hill University. This was a 3 year course which now opened the opportunity to complete my masters degree ! My advice would be to revise alot and to get in any volunteering role ASAP, as experience is crucial in this field and it will set you aside from other people when applying for jobs etc :)
