I would love to study psychology, more specifically child psychology. How do I go about studying this at uni? Do I do psychology first, then do a post-grad in child psychology? And what jobs could I do with this degree? Are they well paid?

Thank you!😃

Child Psychology technically isn't a field of its own.

But yeah, you can generally start with a Psychology degree and go into a postgrad. There are also undergraduate courses that are specific to 'Child Psychology' but they aren't salient.

There are degrees specifically for child psychology, such as https://www.uel.ac.uk/Undergraduate/...ild-Psychology, or more general degrees that have aspects of child psychology, such as https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/prospect...do?id=X3002017. If you wanted to do a undergrad degree in psychology and then specialise, then those options are available, for example https://www.ntu.ac.uk/study-and-cour...ild-psychology. As for career routes then the obvious one is becoming a child psychologist or educational psychologist, or you can do a less specialised career such as counselling. As for salary, obviously it varies depending on the career you choose, but probably in the £35000 range.

I wouldn't do an undergraduate degree in child psychology - it will just be a psychology degree with a different name (which looks worse to employers).
