Career options and next steps after graduation

As stated above, in order to become a qualified psychologist, a student must undergo

• a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited degree in psychology leading to the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC)

• work experience in the specialism they want to work in

• acquire a BPS accredited postgraduate qualification

 

However, a position as a psychologist is not the only career path available for a Psychology graduate. Other jobs which are directly related to a psychology degree include:

• Clinical psychologist

• Counselling psychologist

• Educational psychologist

• Forensic psychologist


Other jobs where psychology degrees would be useful include

• Advertising account planner

• Advice worker

• Careers adviser

• Counsellor

• Human resources officer

• Market researcher

• Psychotherapist


A degree in psychology will equip students with a variety of useful skills. The scientific aspects of psychology courses, including the application of a reasoned approach, problem solving and manipulation of data, provide useful tools for careers in healthcare, law enforcement, finance, IT and research.

Knowledge of human behaviour and motivation, ability to critically analyse a problem, formulate a considered response, create an argument and generate new ideas lend themselves well to careers in the creative industries, the legal sector, government administration and education.

 

Fun facts about Psychology

Psychology is not just about the therapy. Though it is admittedly a part of it, many psychologists do not work in mental health at all. Psychology also involves other areas including teaching, research and consulting. They work in a variety of settings, like colleges and universities, private corporations, K-12 Schools, and government offices.
