BPS accreditation is a requirement if you want to pursue postgraduate training in psychology (clinical, educational or forensic qualifications).
The transferrable skills, including numeracy and statistics and research evaluation, provide a good basis for careers in psychology and the management of people. Potential careers include teaching, social work, marketing, and human resources management.
There are excellent links between staff and industry, including gaming, education, health, security, the police, as well as a number of private and third sector organisations.
A research volunteer scheme offers students the opportunity to gain experience which is invaluable for a research career.
