    I'm thinking of doing a psychology degree. Does anyone know any good ideas or places I can contact to get some experience in 2016? Also any ideas of volunteering related to psychology would be useful too!

    You don't need work experience when applying It can be very difficult to get something related to psychology as well, especially below 18. Focus on extra reading instead

    I know I definitely have to do work experience next year for two weeks, it'd just be great if it could relate to psychology but so far you're right, they're mostly aimed at 18+

    You can try youth/church groups, residential homes for the elderly or charity work. None of it is Psychological, per se, but the core skills of interacting with and helping others are all there.

    Though don't worry too much about it now, but definitely get looking when you're at uni.
