Recent graduates have found a wide range of employment usually typified by education, health and social work careers, but also within broader careers with wholesale and retail sectors, banking and accountancy, journalism and media, recruitment and personnel, amongst others.
At Bristol you have the opportunity to plan much of your degree programme. A modular course structure permits a good deal of flexibility. Your choice of programme may lead towards certain careers; but sensibly many students do not choose possible careers until they have sampled the range of subjects

"My psychology degree provided me with a grounding in knowledge and theory and inspired me to pursue my career."
"The training in writing, critical thinking and giving presentations has afforded me to the confidence to undertake my current role."
"Studying psychology means you have a deeper understanding of the human experience which will put you in a good position to better understand people in the workplace and the issues that affect them, and there are a number of research areas (such as psychometric assessments, motivation and culture) which are directly relevant to some projects."
"My Psychology degree was heavily research focused and taught me valuable skills such as report writing, data collection, insights and analysis."
