Will my degree be recognised?
You should have absolutely no problem with recognition of a psychology degree from a good university. If you are satisfied with the overall quality of the university and the reputation of its psychology department then it is unlikely that you will ever be at a disadvantage if you study psychology abroad.
We have heard recently that it is important to choose a course with British Psychology Society accreditation. Currently no international degrees are accredited by the BPS.
Does it make sense to study psychology abroad?
Yes. Psychology is one of the most popular subjects at British universities and there are lots of graduates every year competing for a relatively small number of interesting jobs. International experience will immediately differentiate you from your peers as you will have an understanding of how psychology is practised internationally.
What else should I bear in mind?
It is worthwhile looking at getting work experience abroad as part of your studies. This will help to build you a network which might make it easier to find a job after you graduate. Don't just assume that this will only help you abroad. Because of the international nature of psychology it could also help you in finding a job back home, too.
Where should I look for psychology degrees abroad?
Psychology is not often taught in English in other countries, although this is changing. Right now, your options are broadest in English-speaking countries but there is a course at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, as well as courses in Spain and Hungary where you can study psychology in English.
