Overview

Psychologists explore behaviour using scientific methods such as observation, experiments and statistical analysis. On the (Hons) Psychology course at Manchester Metropolitan University, you might be conducting experiments, placed in a mock courtroom giving evidence on a patient, debating against fellow students on how we motivate people to make healthy eating choices, or watching a role-play in our simulated living area.

We support our students to develop their natural curiosity, creating psychology graduates equipped to explore the human experience in an ethical, empathetic and scientific manner. 

Career

Perhaps you see yourself in sports coaching or counselling children? Maybe you’re fascinated by business or finance?

As a psychology graduate, there’s a diverse range of career paths you could take. You might decide to pursue a career as a psychologist or use your transferrable skills to work across sectors from education to human resources.

Depending upon the field of psychology you choose, some of the places you might work in are local authorities, social services, prisons, sports clubs, NHS or private hospitals, schools or rehabilitation centres.

Where do some of our graduates work? In housing services at Manchester City Council, as a probation case manager for Cheshire & Greater Manchester Community Rehabilitation Company, as a psychology assistant for an Early Intervention in Psychosis Team at an NHS Trust, and as a trainee High Intensity CBT therapist.
