Studying this specification

During our Edexcel A level Psychology course, you'll study five approaches (Social, Cognitive, Psychodynamic, Biological and Learning) to gain a foundation in psychology. 

You'll develop a holistic understanding of psychology from considering conflicting and complementary explanations of clinical issues and major debates. Through a series of short and manageable practical experiments and tests, you'll develop an active knowledge of the scientific aspects of psychology.
