Results are finally in, and everyone is thinking about where they are going to university, or maybe asking if university is right for them. And you know what? It’s the perfect time. A lot of people may be talking about pandemics and lockdowns and recessions, but you have an amazing opportunity right now.

Because it’s all a bit crazy out there, there has never been a better time to study and enhance your knowledge and skill set. Work towards employment, which you’ll be ready for in a few years time, and skip all the drama and stress of a slow market that exists today. For postgraduates, it’s even a good time to think about going back to higher education and growing your skills and qualifications.

Why study Psychology?

If you’re interested in a career in psychiatric care, as a councilor, psychiatrist or any of the therapeutic fields, then a degree in Psychology is the perfect place to start. The modern world is full of all sorts of stress and anxiety, and more and more people are looking for support from psychologists to objectively and securely talk through their problems.

There’s a lot more to a Psychology degree, though. Insights into human behaviour have become hugely valuable to a wide range of commercial interests. From retailers wanting to understand how and why their customers shop, to marketing firms wanting to more precisely and effectively target their audiences, options are only growing for professionals trained in Psychology.
