Discover – What can I do with my degree?
Psychology graduates have a variety of careers available to them, including Chartered Psychology pathways through to careers in health, education, human resources, and research to name but a few. Remember, you can also explore careers that don’t directly relate to your degree. Did you know that over 80% of graduate employers will recruit from any degree discipline?
You can also stay up-to-date with your department’s good news and forthcoming events by subscribing to their monthly PsychBites Newsletter.
Develop – Developing skills and experience
If you already have some career ideas, the next step will be to develop your skills and gain some experience to build your confidence and increase your knowledge. You may want to consider volunteering, part-time work or undertaking a placement to increase your chances of gaining graduate employment after completing your degree.
