    Okai, so im currently study a CACHE Level 3 Diploma In Childcare and Education, and finish next year (p.s. i do not have any A-levels). Im wanting to go into study psychology at university. Teeside is my first choice. Im hoping to go onto play therapy or children and adolescent counselling and psychotherapy. Im ideally wanting to work with the recover of children who have suffered abuse and trauma. Would psychology be a good undergraduate degree for this area? Also what else could i do with a BSc psychology degree? I heard you can go into teaching, social research and business? i'm also looking for people who are currently studying psychology to ask for further advise and guidence. Thanks

    Other people on TSR will know more about the clinical side of things. Most psych grads tend to on to general jobs that don't require a specific degree (http://www.prospects.ac.uk/options_psychology.htm), worrying retail is the biggest employer of brand new graduates. Only a small proportion will go onto do social research and teaching, i imagine business would be a massive employer though, some jobs like market research actively like psychology students.
