    Career opportunities
    Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology graduates pursue a number of different careers. Some make use of the BPS accreditation and pursue careers in clinical psychology. This is a very competitive profession that requires further training and professional experience. A significant number of students choose further study related to the discipline, either at Masters or PhD level. A small number of students pursue further study in alternative disciplines, such as medicine, dentistry and physiotherapy. Competition for such places is intense and success will depend on a number of things, including the achievement of a very good initial degree. A few students go on to complete a teaching qualification, either a primary or secondary PGCE. Although less than in the past there are still good opportunities for Cognitive Neuroscience and Psychology graduates to enter the pharmaceutical industry, either in research and development, or in associated areas such as sales, marketing and regulatory affairs. Finally a few students choose not to use the discipline at all and choose careers outside of the discipline. These can include accountancy, finance, law, marketing and publishing.
