Careers
Employer-valued skills this course develops

This programme is specifically designed to enable students with a non-psychology background to pursue a psychology based career, many of which require a BPS accredited degree for further training. This degree will therefore help prepare graduates for a subsequent career in, for example, clinical psychology, educational psychology, organisational and occupational psychology, and forensic psychology.

Graduates will acquire a number of skills on completion of the programme, including enhancing their ability to think critically and solve problems, to learn through team work and be engaged in a student-led project. They will also become an engaged and participative leader in debates on psychological issues, and the diversity of assignments they will complete will make them adaptable and resilient.

Students undertaking the optional Special Educational Needs: Teaching and Learning module could also be offered a short placement in an education context, allowing some application of their studies.
