    So I'm pretty sure I want to do both of these degree's down in east london (or up depending on where you are). Im asking if any one has done these degree's and what they thought about them etc, Ive look on uni stats for child psychology but there isnt enough info for just child psychology so they put it together with psychology. Any light on both of these degrees would be helpful thanks!

    Unfortunately I have done neither of these courses, or know anything about them. I'd suggest not worrying too much about your PG just yet, you'll have a lot more knowledge and experience to draw upon in three years time and the same options may not be available.

    On the whole, if the Psychology course is BPS accredited then it is largely the same as any other Psychology course (regardless of its actual name). Pick a specific one if it interests you, but the main thing is making sure the university is a good match for you.

    If you're studying psychology make sure it's BPS accredited, further than that you should just have a look at the modules/lecturer's specialities and see if they look like they will interest you. Anything BPS accredited will include the various areas of psychology (biology, cognitive, social etc) and will include modules on history and qualitative and quantitive research methods (including stats). That actually take a decent portion of the degree, especially when you consider how much of third year is consumed by your dissertation. There will be some options throughout where you can focus on whatever interests you most.

    As far as postgrad course, have a good look at what career path you want (e.g. do you want to do a counselling masters or a clinical psychology doctorate) and look at various options while you're doing your undergrad. Get some good experience under your belt so you're in a strong position to pursue whatever you decide to on graduating. Bank work as a support worker (mental health, disabilities etc) is good as it's paid (albeit poorly) but there will also be loads of voluntary opportunities too.
