what jobs can you get with a psychology degree and are these jobs in demand? i’m not sure if i want to study medicine or psychology in university. medicine seems interesting and the jobs are also in demand so it’s likely that i would get a job quickly. i also like psychology but i’m not sure if psychology jobs are in demand

Hi, 0603,

There's some really good information here: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...ree/psychology and for medicine: https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...egree/medicine - if you scroll down you can see the stats for employment and then compare.

But either way, I would go with what you're most interested in!

It's little said, but a very common destination for psychology graduates is support worker. PWP is common. High intensity therapist is not particularly. Assistant Psychologist. A lot of other people get admin type roles in councils, care homes, HR, teaching assistant, charities, specialist workers/advisors e.g. alzheimers, autism etc. Those are the sort of work that psychology graduates go into 1-2 years after graduating. Have a look at linkedin profiles.

Obviously a lot of what I've written is 'low paid'.

I think the list prospects has written is very unhelpful indeed.
