    What are some of the careers that anybody with a psychology degree have gone into or considered- I’m in my first year and want to explore some options.
    Anything that uses your transferable skills. Find out where grads from your course have ended up. There are also research and clinical routes in the field which will need further study so do your research well

    As above, you can do research or become a psychologist (with further study). You can do generic graduate schemes/jobs, HR etc. Basically anything that doesn't require a specific degree and psychology-specific ones

    My friend did Psychology BA and Masters. At the moment, she is working at a NHS dentist on the admin side, dealing with patients, taking bookings, creating projects to encourage good dental hygiene in primary schools and compiling questionnaires and collecting data.
