How to Make the Most of your Psychology Degree does exactly what it says on the tin. From choosing your modules to thinking about your squiggly career path, this book equips psychology students with the skills necessary to make the most of their degrees.

Taking an informal, chatty approach, the book draws on the experiences of tutors who have supported thousands of Psychology students through highs and lows. It will help you to understand what is expected of you and how to set expectations and goals for yourself. Recognising that success takes different forms, this book will support students on their personal learning journeys.

It focuses on helping students:
- To set the right mindset and attitude for studying
- To understand that 'your career starts now'
- To take ownership of your career trajectory
- To start to understand the varied career paths that are open to you

Linked to key frameworks - such as the Quality Assurance Agency and Teaching Excellence Framework - and tailored to include key learnings from The British Psychological Society (BPS) - this book will be a "one stop shop" for students looking to develop their professional skills.
