Careers and employability
Undergraduate and postgraduate study in psychology provides you with a foundation for a wide range of careers.
A psychology degree is favoured by many potential employers because it reflects a university education that develops the skills of literacy and numeracy. 92% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating (Unistats 2018) which shows the strength of our degree programmes.
We work closely with the University Careers Service to prepare our graduates for employment after graduation. We provide careers management sessions and a general careers talk for final year students each year. You will also have the opportunity to attend University approved courses provided by the Careers Service, and the Students' Union, which focus on transferable skills.
