BSc Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology / Careers

Year of entry: 2019

Career opportunities

Some our graduates take advantage of this course's  BPS accreditation  to pursue a career in clinical psychology. This is a very competitive profession that requires further training and professional experience.

Alternatively, our graduates are well-qualified to work as researchers in universities, pharmaceutical and bioscience companies and institutes.

Some of our graduates progress into laboratory-based careers in clinical or technical roles that do not involve research.

The transferable skills you will develop will also leave you well-equipped for a wide range of careers outside the lab.

Find out more about  how we help our students prepare for the workplace  and the careers our graduates go into within and outside the lab.
