Graduates with single or major honours in Psychology can apply directly for postgraduate training, in order to work towards becoming a forensic psychologist.

The majority of Psychology graduates across the country do not become professional psychologists immediately after graduation. Many continue on to train in counselling. Others work in clinical disciplines in preparation for a Doctorate in Clinical or Educational Psychology.

Forensic Psychology is an attractive option due to its flexibility. Other career options for students also involve roles in management, sales and advertising, probation work, and human resources.
