Undergraduate awards may be achieved directly or through a series of progression steps. Learners may choose to progress upwards from a Level 5 to a Level 6, Level 7 and finally a Level 8.
Undergraduate awards are awarded by the QQI, HEA or Higher Education Institutes.
3rd level Graduates are qualified for a wide range of occupations, and their education prepares them for roles involving specific skills, and for coordinating, supervising, managing, or training others.

A degree in Psychology can lead to a comprehensive list of careers including roles in clinical psychology, counselling, education, health, forensics, sport, HR Management, and Business. The broader skills learned – such as critical thinking, communication, teamwork, research and project management skills – are also desirable for employers in a wide range of sectors
Graduates who decide not to continue further training in psychology will find that a primary degree in psychology is a valuable qualification. It combines high levels of literacy and numeracy, experience in working both individually and within teams, as well as analysing data and carrying out research.
