If as a Joint Honours student you go on to complete the MSc Psychology, the option of entering professional training within a particular pathway in psychology is then opened up to you.

Studying Business Management will prepare you for a wide range of interesting and challenging careers in public, private and voluntary sectors, both in the UK and overseas. You will be able to select from a wide range of sectors in which to work, including accounting, advertising, banking, distribution, human resources, finance, insurance, leisure, marketing, operations management, retail and sales. You are likely to work initially as a trainee manager in a large organisation, or perhaps as a junior manager in a smaller one before moving on to more senior management positions.

A degree with Psychology is highly favoured by employers, giving you an excellent advantage in the job market. Previous graduates have gone into roles as diverse as management, human resources, teaching, and healthcare or art therapy. During your studies with us you will learn and develop a broad range of transferable skills. An important part of this learning process is the ability to reflect upon your own experiences; an aspect of practice engaged in by all professional psychologists.
