Your career development
With the British Psychological Society’s GBC secured (provided you graduate with a 2.2 honours degree), you will be eligible on graduation to pursue further postgraduate (Masters of Doctoral) training in psychology, possibly as a professional psychologist (in forensic, clinical, educational, occupational, counselling, and sport psychology), to pursue an academic and / or research career in various areas of psychology (by working as a research assistant, for example, or by studying for a Masters or PhD), or simply to exploit the transferable skills you have learned on your course to pursue a career outside of psychology.
Psychology qualifications tend to be very popular with all employers because they demand an ability to communicate effectively in both spoken and written forms (through verbal presentation and the writing of essays and reports), an ability to solve real-world problems, and well-developed numerical skills. This all means you will be well placed to capitalise on other graduate employment opportunities in areas as diverse as marketing, human resources, policing and teaching. Further study or training may be required for some of these roles.
