    I am coming to the end of my undergraduate psychology degree and really feel like I have wasted 3 years of my life and £27k of funding. What to do now with this so called versatile degree with many opportunities??

    To be honest so many people have psychology degrees these days that it's worthless unless you've got a first from a really really really good uni.

    Just get another degree in something like medicine if possible. And you could apply for something in a medium level management sector where all disciplines are accepted.

    I know, I was very optimistic when I started by now looking at career prospects, It doesn't look great at all. I was debating on doing dental hygiene in the beginning as I was and still am a dental nurse but I choose this pointless degree.

    The thing is now, I can't get anymore funding so doing another degree, I will have to find the £9 000/year myself so I'm kind of getting depressed now thinking about it all.
