Course description

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
One of the UK's fastest-growing subject at degree level, and the fourth most popular subject overall, one in 24 of all graduates last year had psychology degrees. As you'd expect with figures like that, jobs in psychology itself are incredibly competitive, so to stand a chance of securing one, you need to get a postgraduate qualification (probably a doctorate in most fields) and some relevant work experience. But even though there are so many psychology graduates – far more than there are jobs in psychology – this degree has a lower unemployment rate than average because its grads are so flexible and well-regarded by business. With a mix of good people skills and with excellent number and data handling skills, a psychology degree ticks most employers' boxes – but we'd suggest you don't drop your maths modules.

Only a small number of students study courses sitting under this broad subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - bear that in mind when you look at the stats. Graphic arts, education and PR are some of the typical jobs for graduates, but it's a good idea to attend open days and talk to tutors about what you might expect from a specific course and what previous graduates typically go on to do.
