As well as being the essential foundation for the psychology professions, our programmes pave the way to a broad range of career pathways. The learning, skills and confidence acquired by students on our programmes reflect the knowledge and competencies required by diverse professions and meet the expectations of the job market.
There are many jobs and careers that are options for you with a BSc Psychology degree. These include jobs within the Allied Psychology sector, such as: Employment Specialist, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, Social Prescribing Link Worker, Wellbeing Manager, Mental Health Social Worker, FE Psychology teacher, Research Assistant or Assistant Psychologist. Some of these many require further training that we can help you with.
A third of our graduates become professional psychologists but many others go into different graduate careers - health and social welfare, sport and leisure, education, human resource management, consumer research and advertising, media, market research and community work. If you choose to continue your studies, your degree in psychology will be the first step towards becoming a professional psychologist, whether it is in the field of clinical, educational, counselling or forensic psychology.
Some of our industry partners are the NHS Trusts across the North Thames region, MIND, Terrence Higgins Trust, Centrepoint, Women's Aid, National Autistic Society, Young Gamblers and Gamers Education Trust (YGAM), and many others where our students gain experience alongside professionals.
