Psychology Qualifications

Why AQA Psychology?

Psychology is a popular subject which is attractive to students because it develops a range of valuable skills, including critical analysis, independent thinking and research. These skills are particularly relevant to young people and are transferable to further study and the workplace.

Our qualifications offer students an engaging and stimulating introduction to the study of psychology, combined with the academic integrity and skills that Higher Education and employers value.

We are confident that our specifications will continue to ensure that the psychologists of the future will have a fascinating and coherent introduction to the subject.
