Study UK Subject Focus: PSYCHOLOGY
According to a survey by BBC News, Psychology has seen a spiral rise in choice and popularity among students studying in the UK. The continuing popularity of Psychology at the undergraduate or graduate level could be the thrill it presents students throughout the research and analysis process. There are two different types of undergraduate degrees in Psychology; the Bachelor of Arts which focuses on liberal arts and education, and Bachelor of Science which looks at science and mathematics. Notably, the employment level is also very high among UK Psychology graduates. Their wide range of transferrable skills makes them all lucrative candidates for highly aspirational positions. According to the Independent, a Psychology student has an enviable range of employment options in comparison to others; for example he or she could work as a Criminal Psychologist for the Police or Legal Department; as a Clinical Psychologist to try and understand the trauma of a patient; they could become a teacher of Psychology, or perhaps impart statistical analysis at various Scientific Departments.
