    I recently received an unconditional offer from Teesside to study psychology and counselling. At first I was over the moon with this offer and recently as university is just around the corner, I'm becoming a lot more stressed. I'm unsure of exactly what I want to do when I'm older, but I would like to pursue a career I'm human resources, counselling or something within the management field. As of my course, the core modules are the same as general psychology bachelors degree, with additional modules applicable to counselling. I do not necessarily want to become a counselling psychologist, I am just worried that I have chosen the wrong course and instead should have chosen psychology. I am aware there are other routes to get into my desired field of work, but I don't want to be limited to one option if I do change my mind. The prospects website states that human resources employ psychology graduates, but I'm just so worried! My friends think I'm over thinking and I'm just afraid. Will the counselling aspect of my course be offputting to potential employers, or am I over thinking ?

    Teesside have a Psychology with Business degree - perhaps that worth exploring?

    http://www.tees.ac.uk/undergraduate_...h_Business.cfm

    and it might be worth contacting them to discuss the course with a view to switching. This is a accredited by the BPS and would let you explore both psychology and business/management further.

    Course =/= what you do after uni.

    Lots of straight Psychology grads go into HR schemes/jobs after uni, it's not an issue.
