Masters Degree Psychology Career Prospects


The MSc Psychology is a conversion programme for graduates from disciplines other than Psychology who wish to gain GBC (Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership). It is the first step for those who wish to pursue a career as a Chartered Psychologist in the UK. GBC ensures that a student has sufficient knowledge, understanding and experience of academic Psychology before they apply for postgraduate professional training in areas such as clinical, occupational, educational or counselling psychology.

A degree in Psychology opens the door to professional opportunities around the globe. We’ll provide you with the kinds of intellectual skills that are attractive to many employers as you will gain a deep knowledge of the field, but also an understanding of reciprocal relationship psychological research has with medicine, public policy, public opinion and the media.

Psychology makes students a good candidate for jobs in almost any area, and its graduates can be found in healthcare services, as well as community services, research and education.
