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, 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.
We offer an MSc in Psychology following your BSc that would provide you with the Graduate Basis for Chartership with the British Psychological Society (BPS). 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. See the MSc Psychology webpage for more information.
