School of Psychology

Undertaking a degree is both exciting and challenging. The University of Bedfordshire School of Psychology offers you a diverse curriculum which is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and reflects our staff research expertise. 

This means that you will gain in-depth subject knowledge and have the opportunity to investigate, in detail, a topic that you are interested in for your final year Research Dissertation.

We know that in the current economic climate you will need the best skills and qualities so that you can be adaptable in this ever changing job market. 

Working closely with the University of Bedfordshire Careers and Recruitment Service, our Learning Resources Centre and local employers, we aim to support you into graduate employment and lifelong learning. 

What careers can you go into with a Psychology degree?

Traditionally psychology graduates go on to become Charted Psychologists and we can support you in your journey towards these careers. However, the flexibility of a Psychology degree, drawing on both the sciences and humanities means that many psychology graduates go on to work in a wide range of environments including; education, health and Social care, as well working in prisons, the police force, the armed services, business, marketing and advertising. Some of these positions you can go on to without further study. 

You may decide that you want to go on to postgraduate studies  that would  provide you with a deeper knowledge of specific areas of Psychology. We offer an MSc Health Psychology, MSc Psychological Approaches to Health and Management and MSc Forensic Psychology

Have a look at some of our graduate profiles to see examples of where our graduates have gone.
