CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

As psychology is the study of human behaviour, psychological knowledge can be applied to understand and solve problems in a variety of professions, from school teachers to managers; from public relations to advertising. Many psychologists are employed in some kind of therapeutic role, for example clinical psychologists or counsellors. Many also conduct scientific research in universities or other academic settings. However, it is important to note that in order to work as a specialist psychologist, for example an educational psychologist, forensic psychologist or clinical psychologist, further training will be required.
