School of Psychology Degree programmes

More than a degree

Employers want students to be able to provide evidence of their skills and competencies. Employers call this process "employability".

Our degree schemes provide opportunities to develop these abilities. These opportunities include personal tutor meetings and the professional placement. In addition, The Skills Development Service, run by the Cardiff University Students Union, and Cardiff University Careers & Employability provide further resources, including Careers Central and careers consultations.

Get work experience


Careers and Employability can help you find work experience (such as SPRINT, CUPID, AMP & GO Wales).



Volunteering opportunities are available through the Student Volunteering Committee, PsyCardiff and The Brain Games.

Academic & skills development centre


The Centre offers free skills classes to all our undergraduate students.  These include topics on critical thinking, essay writing, time management, note taking, and presentation skills.
