Aoife Lyons
Psychology is a very broad area and I would encourage people to reflect on the field that would suit them best. If you study pharmacy, you will graduate as a pharmacist. It is different in psychology. The role of a Clinical Psychologist differs significantly from the role of an Educational Psychologist, a Forensic Psychologist or a Sports Psychologist. A post graduate qualification will be required to practice in any of these fields. Regardless of the area of psychology that interests you, respect for and an interest in people is a key value that is required. Once you have qualifications, networks and professional bodies are a good way to meet prospective employers.

Career Progression header image

One of the greatest strengths of the ACCA syllabus is the breadth and depth of subjects that it covers. Not only will you have a qualification that is relevant on a global scale, but by having the option to take variant papers, in law and tax, your qualification will be relevant to your local working environment. The ACCA qualification is highly regarded throughout the world and enables you to become a Chartered Certified Accountant, use the designatory letters ACCA after your name and work in any aspect of finance or management in any sector of business.
