In particular, the Applied Psychology degree from Middlesex University Dubai has been designed with the international student in mind providing an introduction to a wide variety of applications for psychology in the real world. This allows students to gain diverse academic skills and psychological knowledge which can be applied to their individual situations and careers. It may also be used as a stepping stone for personal development and potentially future studies in psychology.
The degree focuses on the application of psychological science to work and daily life and showcases the many fields covered by the psychology profession. These include: organisation, counselling and neuropsychology of education. In each case the understanding of human behaviour students gain can be generalised beyond the specific field of psychology. For example, counselling skills such as listening and re-formulating a problem are at the core of managerial skills. Also understanding how people manage their health and wellbeing is important in families dealing with illness or for individuals trying to kick bad habits such as smoking.
Psychology is one of those subjects where a little bit of genuine interest and understanding goes a long way. We encourage students to read widely and to consider how theories and research expand their knowledge.

“I studied BA Honours International Tourism Management at Middlesex University Dubai. The application process was made easy by the University’s friendly Admissions Department, who responded to my application immediately and coached me throughout the process. As a Nigerian student, I chose to study in Dubai because it is a city filled with incredible opportunities, and at the University I have had the chance to meet people from many different countries. As well as making friends from around the world, my lecturers have always been friendly and supportive. Before joining the BA programme, I studied the International Foundation Programme (IFP) at Middlesex University Dubai which prepared me for Undergraduate study.”

Future Careers and Employability
The several areas of psychology covered provide an in-depth understanding of how psychology is applied in everyday life, thus furnishing students with the tools required for a successful career. In addition there is an emphasis on research skills development culminating in the thesis project.
Applied Psychology graduates are concerned with the relations between people and work, and in the underlying causes of behaviour that impact on managerial or social policy. Therefore their expertise is relevant to both private and public sectors.
Opportunities for those with master’s degrees tend to be concentrated in business, industry and government settings; or students may work as an ABA therapist. The degree will enable successful students to further their career in areas such as business education, psychology or care industries. In addition to this, successful graduates might join running research projects within various organisations, facilitating data collection, entry and analysis, and reporting research findings.
