A degree in Psychology is an advantage to any job that requires an understanding of people and organisation, including research and policy-related positions. Our graduates learn perspectives on understanding and engaging with others—skills relevant to helping communities such as working in disability support or youth engagement—as well as research skills useful for user-centred design, marketing and management roles.

Psychology graduates with a Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology, which includes a Master's or PhD qualification in Psychology and two years’ work experience, are able to register and work as clinical psychologists.
