There are so many components to Psychology that many of us don’t consider to be a part of our everyday life. Knowing how to read human-beings and certain situations, understanding how people think and what motivates them to act is an incredibly powerful skill across a variety of careers, as well as many aspects of our daily lives.

There are a range of industries psychologists and those with psychology training can work across, as we focus on understanding people through critical thinking, research and data analysis.

Health Sciences covers a range of careers in the healthcare sector from Medical Scientist, Exercise and Sport Scientists to Nutrition Scientists. Science is the backbone of the health sector, and we use evidence-based research to inform our daily choices. From what we eat, to how we perform athletically, and what diagnosis can be determined when we fall ill. This is just a snapshot of careers in Health, but they are important ones which directly impact our day to day lives.
