Thank you for choosing careerguide and writing to us. I appreciate your interest in expanding career opportunities in Psychology both in India and abroad. If you do your post graduation in Psychology from any Indian institute you are likely to specialize in Clinical psychology, Counselling psychology, educational psychology or Industrial/organisational psychology. These are the common elective subjects offered by Indian institutions and therefore based on these elective subjects, I shall brief you the types of careers you are likely to get in India and abroad.
Thanks for posting a query. Psychology is broad area which include specializations. You did not mention your specialization so it would be difficult to say what kind of job Psychology professionals may get. In addition, you did not mention which foreign countries? I assume that you want to know the scope of most specializations of Psychology and by abroad I assume you mean western countries.
You can not work in Western countries with Indian degree as Western countries have their own regulatory bodies and you need certification from institutions in respective country. Certification must include practice in respective cultural context under licensed psychologist. After certification, one need to apply for license. After license, once can practice or work as psychologist.
In India, counseling, clinical, educational, industrial and forensic psychology is known specializations.
Counseling psychologists work in not-for-profit organizations, mental health institutes, hospital for mental health, academics institutions (school, college) or private practitioner.
Clinical psychologists work in hospital for mental health, academic institutions, research agency, or private practice.
Industrial psychologists work in corporate houses in the area of Human Resource Management, Recruitment, Training and Development, Employee Counseling etc., academics or work as independent consultants.
Forensic psychologists can work in forensic laboratory, correctional homes, CBI's forensic department (recruitment is through UPSC exam), academics, or independent consultant.
Hope this is helping you.
