You will also develop other critical skills such as time management, critical thinking and research, allowing you to succeed in a wide range of careers and job roles.

Your future

Your new psychology skills will also be beneficial to roles within healthcare, criminal justice, the civil service and security services.

Once you finish your CertHE course you are also able to progress onto the LLB (Hons) Law with Psychology course, a Qualifying Law Degree (QLD) which allows you to complete the academic stage of legal education.
