Our qualifications offer an engaging and effective introduction to Psychology which will appeal to a cross-section of students, regardless of whether they have studied Psychology before.

Retaining the most popular features of our previous, market-leading qualifications, we have introduced some minor amendments that reflect advances and changes in the subject.

We have designed the AS and A-level specifications to cover the core areas of Psychology and be fully co-teachable within the first year of study.

A comprehensive range of support is available including direct contact with our subject team, our website and high quality online resources.
