Healthcare and Psychology

Overview

The Healthcare sector is large and varied. A good overview of the types of organisations and different job roles which make up this sector is available on the Prospects website. If you are studying a science-related degree it is sometimes easier to see where you fit into this sector, but there are roles for those with Business, Engineering, Arts and Humanities degrees as well. Some will require further professional training. The NHS site What Can I Do with My Degree (see Useful resources below) helps you to identify what might be possible.
