So I'm going to study Psychology at Uni, but I've noticed that Psychology gets a lot of stick on TSR because apparently there's not many job opportunities and it's not as good as engineering, mathematics, medicine, bla bla bla…

Therefore I'm just curious as to what Psychology Graduates end up doing, even if you end up working in an area completely unrelated to psychology...

My daugther did a Psychology degree followed by a one year Masters in Marketing. She did not find it too difficult to get her job after her Masters and is now working as a Marketing Executive in a large company(and enjoying it). Another option she condidered was to do a Masters in Human Resource Management.

My sister got a bachelors and is currently working in the civil service but has applied for a statistics job (i think?) and an apprenticeship elsewhere.

Occupational psychology is a well paid job. There’s a reasonably large gap for this as it’s not a widely advertised option for psychology graduates.

My friend graduated with a Psychology degree. It's been a few years until she got where she has.

Firstly, she got a job as a receptionist/PA to a forensic psychiatrist. This experience led her to do some work in a psychiatric hospital for youth offenders. This current work involves what you think it does. She has now been given clearance to work for the police that involve crimes committed by mentally unwell people.

So, not all Psych grads need MA or PhDs. Nothing wrong with starting from he bottom and working your way up.

Her job now is probs what most Psychology students envy (if you like psychiatry and mental illness).
