    its not the university that gets you the job, its the applicant. They need to have work experience and put together a good application, whether that is a CV & covering letter or answering online questions or completing tests, then pass the interview/assessment centre or both.

    Birkbeck is OK, the Psychology BSc is a bit hit and miss depending on what lecturer you get. I've been both really pleased and really disappointed during my degree. It's definitely not like going to a daytime uni, and parts of their Russell Square campus is in desperate need of refurbishment. The Psych department is very brain science research focused which is reflected in the lecturers.

    But if all you want is the degree to then move on, then I don't see why not .
