Independent: a brief overview of studying psychology at university

September 28, 2012

The range of careers in mental health is pretty confusing, but the range of courses, diplomas, degrees and certifications is so mind bogglingly complicated, that some potential students may find themselves applying for the wrong course or may even give up on psychology altogether.

The Independent newspaper has an article which looks at the options for studying psychology at university:

In the UK, 123 universities offer a total of 655 masters degrees in psychology and – according to the British Psychological Society – approximately 25 per cent of graduates in the subject go on to further study. For those wanting to become a chartered psychologist, a postgraduate qualification is vital and, assuming that you have 2:1 or higher grade from a Society-accredited undergraduate degree, then postgraduate study in the subject is open to you.
