    What jobs can you get with a psychology degree (that you can't get without?) Im thinking of doing it but can't see where it will get me, I guess its like asking where any degree will get you but Id like a career in something healthcare/social sciences related.

    IMO, there's nothing that good you can do with just a degree in Psychology; you have to do a master's degree for anything interesting. If you look on the British Psychological Society's website, there's a pdf about careers in psychology on there (I'm too lazy to find it for you, but it's easy to find if you google it). Also, the website prospects.ac.uk is pretty good for info on what jobs you can get with what degree you have.

    I kind of agree with this person. A psychology degree is obviously most suited for pushing you towards a career in psychology, but to do that, you will need further education.

    At graduate level, you could go into things like Graduate Mental Health Worker positions, or Assistant Psychologist jobs. But keep in mind these are INCREDIBLY competitive, and are generally used as a stepping stone for the doctorate programme.

    But other than that, I can't really tell you much else. A Psych degree can be suitable in other areas of work outside of psychology, but you might lose out to more tailored degrees, if that makes sense?

    The prospects website has a few options related to a psych degree listed here

    Or to see what actual psych grads go on to do have a look here

    As others have said, postgraduate study is definitely the way to go if you want to use psychology in your career.
