I'm in year 12 and my favourite subject is psychology. I love it so much and find it so interesting. I really want a career in something which is always changing and I could also help people. I'm interested in clinical psychology and I want to know what I would have to do to get into this profession. I know that i'll need to a degree in psychology, but what do I do after that? Also is there any sort of work experience you can get in psychology? Thank you so much for the help!!!

Hi,

I am on my 2nd year of my Psychology degree. To become a Psychologist you will need at least a 2.1 in your undergraduate degree.

After this it is recommended (but not essential) that you take a masters in clinical psychology to better your chances in getting into a Phd in clinical Psychology.

You will also need ALOT of experience in a care setting, paid or voluntary e.g. care home.

So long story short :

Bsc Psychology - 3 years
MSc In Clinical Psychology - 1 - 2 years
Phd In Clinical Psychology. - 3 years

Also be aware that you may not gain entry to MSc or Phd on your first go, alot of people have to keep reapplying each year as this is a VERY competitive field.

Its called a doctorate (ClinPsyD) - not a PhD (which is a philosophy doctorate...). PhDs are purely research degrees, not clinical.
