      Having a degree in psychology opens up loads of career pathways. You could get a PhD and then go into academia, or get a few years of postgraduate as an assistant psychologist then apply for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and train to become a clinical psychologist (the British Psychological Society has more information on this). You could also do further training after your undergraduate degree to specialise in other areas of psychology.

      Other jobs you could get are roles in science communication (which is what I do), marketing, HR, counselling, and more.

      I agree with Liv, having a psychology degree can open a lot of doors for you because of the broad range of skills you develop doing this degree. You can continue with research by doing a PhD. Or you can go down one of the specialist psychologist routes e.g. educational, clinical, or forensic. You can also go into a range of other roles such marketing, HR, law, counselling, therapist etc.,
