    Hello ,
    I am studying Bsc Psychology with cognitive neuroscience and I'm a first year. I want to know what careers I can go into , with consideration that Im definitely going to study a Phd too. So basically I want the careers I want to go into to require a Phd and typically require a master in neuroscience. But if u have other suggestions I definitely want to hear !

    So far I have spent hours researching and have gotten the following
    - clinical neuropsychologist
    -clinical neuropshictarist( Kcl)
    - clinical neuroscientist ( kcl)
    - Phd in psychological medicine ( kcl, no idea what career this leads to )
    - neuropsychologist
    - cognitive neuroscientist Or neuroscientist (dk the difference)
    - counselling neuropsychologist - this is something I am really interested in , does this exist ?


    The thing is I was supposed to study neuroscience but I didn't get the grades.
    I want to go into a career that I could have gone into if I studied neuroscience Bsc if that makes sense. Which is why on the above choices there is a lot of neuro/ neuroscientist career choices.

    Thank you !!!

    You can't be a psychiatrist without a degree in medicine. The rest, you need a doctorate for (DClinPsy) - this is NOT a PhD by the way. If you want to be a scientist, that requires a PhD.

    This is the difference between what you ask:
    http://neuropsychologyprograms.com/2...-vs-cognitive/

    You need to do a PhD in neuroscience if you want to be a scientist and go into research. Do you want to do research?

    No, counselling neuropsychology doesn't exist because counselling assumes that a client's problem isn't biological. "Neuro" assumes a biological aspect.

    Counselling and research are two VERY DIFFERENT things. Think really carefully about what you like.

    I'm tied between neuropsychologist and a clinical neuroscientist what would be the steps involved in becoming a a clinical neuroscientist .
    Also I think I'll go into something that's more research/ clinical if that makes sense

    Realistically, I think you should take a look on this website linked below:
    https://nationalcareersservice.direc...ages/Home.aspx

    There is barely a career that isn't listed on that site. It also tells you what qualifications are generally needed, salaries, popularity of the job in recent years, etc.

    There are a fair amount of careers not listed and some of the information is inaccurate.For giving a general idea, however, it's great.

    In which case I'll straight up apologise for any inaccuracies I said, but I've truly never searched for a career on there and not found it. I guess OP needs to find out for themselves

    As for the inaccurate information, I gathered that it was because it was based on national averages so there's only so much accuracy they could have anyway, but I'd say it's been a tremendous help.

    I even discovered some careers I never even knew existed.
