Psychology students learn how to improve employability

Posted on Monday, December 16 2013

BU Psychology students were given valuable advice on how to improve their employability in a thought-provoking lecture by Dr Julie Hulme.

Dr Hulme is the Discipline Lead for Psychology for the Higher Education Academy which supports the psychology academic community in the UK.

The purpose of the talk was for students to recognise the skills that they had and how they could apply these to the workplace.

Students were left with an important message: β€œIt’s up to you to build your employability”.

The talk was arranged by BU Associate Professor of Psychology Education Dr Jacqui Taylor, who has written a guide to psychological literacy with Dr Hulme which is being used by Psychology Departments across the UK.
