I'm choosing between doing psychology with cognitive neuroscience or a biology degree. I find both really interesting but I'm not sure what kind of job i would want in the future. I want to know if anyone who has studied psychology (or graduated), what did you do after your degree? Was it worth it?

If you do psychology as a degree, most likely your going to be a psychologist right? so wouldn't a masters and then phd be next, personally most people i know that did psychology didn't want to commit to further years of study so they went into human resource management.

I've actually gone on to do my masters in Psychology and I really enjoy it - I'm hoping to work on the more social side of Psychology, ie Domestic Abuse. Speaking of which, I am doing my dissertation at the moment, can you please take my survey? https://livpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6Wmi26G3nkqNoI5

It was worth it for me, even if I can't currently use my degree.

My sister is currently doing a master's in the field and intended to compete the next stage of training to become a clinical psychologist - she's definitely loved it and it shows in her grades too.

If you do go for psychology, make sure the course is accredited by the BPS, else if you want to go down the psychologist route you'll need to do extra training.

If you’re interested in a subject it’s always worth studying. But remember it’s easier to convert to psychology later than it is to other subjects. If you want a career that uses psychological principles, you don’t need to do a psychology degree. Something worth thinking about.

Depends on what you want to do in the future honestly. I wouldn’t recommend going into studying in the hopes of becoming a Clinical Psychologist because of how soul sucking the competition is to become one. It is extremely hard and most people give up on trying to get into the doctorate course. I am genuinely worried for my future because of this. However, if you want to become a researcher in cognitive psychology/neurology I would say that you can do that with both of those degrees and I would suggest going along with psychology. Psychology degree is very fun and it is extremely broad. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be disadvantaged if you chose Psychology over Biology in any means.

I didn't do psychology as an undergraduate degree, but I'm doing a masters in Forensic Psychology at the moment and I love it
