Testimonial

Loren Edelmuth
Bachelor of Arts – Psychology
Magnum brand, Unilever

"I chose to study psychology because of my interest in people, understanding human nature and the way we function. I knew that I didn't want to do clinical psychology, but I found the course content very interesting. This degree has really helped me in all roles that I have landed since university. I learnt a lot about dealing with people through this degree. I always remember this in the work force, so that I am able to flex my style and approach depending on who I am dealing with.

I am now in a marketing role working for Unilever, and the skills that I learnt have really helped me deal with the different stakeholders and functions that I work with. Overall, I highly recommend this degree. There are so many options for subjects and access to really amazing teachers. Don't limit yourself to a career in what you study – the many skills and knowledge you will gain is transferable to other industries!"
