Organisational psychology involves the study of human behaviour in the workplace. It is also referred to as industrial or occupational psychology.
Organisational psychologists recognise the importance of relationships between individuals, organisations, and society. They deal with issues and problems involving people at work by serving as advisors in a variety of organisations.
In order to become an organisational psychologist, a primary degree in psychology is required, followed by postgraduate training in organisational or occupational psychology. You can enhance your chances of achieving a place on such a programme by obtaining at least a 2.1 in your undergraduate degree and gaining work experience in companies’ human resource departments. Additional training in communication skills or psychometrics and research experience in a relevant area can also be beneficial.
