For graduates seeking a career which might build on the skills and knowledge gained during their studies, the good news is that psychology graduates are in high demand both in Ireland and further afield. Graduates with Psychology degrees can be found working in such diverse areas as marketing, human resources, consultancy, academia, finance, health and wellbeing and others.
In the U.K. the British Psychological Society 13 reports in a survey of nearly 2,400 Psychology graduates from 2009 to 2015 that 12 months after graduation, almost 87% of respondents were in full-time employment
or postgraduate study. Within two years of graduation, this had risen to over 91% and peaks at over 93% at seven years post-graduation.
There are few degrees that have better employment and career outcomes than Psychology.
