At Birmingham City University, we are committed to preparing students for successful employability and professional careers. We have an innovative approach to employability that will help you obtain an interesting and well-paid graduate job.

A psychology degree opens up a wide range of career opportunities both within and outside the psychology field.

Placement opportunities

Voluntary placements and regular tutorials/lectures from experts working in the field add real colour and currency to your studies. Staff will also be happy to facilitate students who wish to gain some work experience in addition to the taught programme. Current students have been involved in work settings such as psychology research (in both participatory and data collection roles), shadowing Clinical and Educational Psychologists and health related areas of work.
