Retraining for Psychology Graduate Schemes

Are you interested in applying for one of the many graduate schemes available in the UK? Did you know that a Postgraduate degree can improve your chances of getting accepted? In the field of psychology, where extensive training is required, a master’s programme can develop your knowledge and take your employability to the next level, getting you seen by top employers.

Not only do psychology graduate schemes provide an excellent level of support as you kick start your career, but they also offer structured growth with great earning potential. Our MSc Psychology course doesn’t just open doors to NHS training schemes either, and there are many career options you can take. Here are some graduate programmes that may interest you:

HR graduate schemes

Many of our psychology graduates move onto a career in HR or recruitment, using psychology theory and psychological research as a platform for understanding people and improving team management.

The changes in industry call for highly-skilled HR managers, making psychology-trained HR specialists in demand, now and in the future. From on-boarding talent and attracting remote workers, a lot is evolving in this space.

Marketing graduate schemes

Another alternative career route is marketing, with graduate schemes taking on only the most qualified candidates. Psychology training hugely benefits the world of media and advertising. It provides insight into the human mind and how it responds to different forms of messaging, preparing you for a strategic career in marketing and other related areas.

Prison services graduate training

If you’re interested in becoming a prison officer, our MSc Psychology course will increase your chances of acceptance on a graduate training scheme. This route is the most popular route into leadership positions such as working as a prison governor, but there are many other career paths to consider, including prison instructor jobs or working in the probation services.
