Hi. I am very interested in doing Child Psychology. I have 5 GCSEs including Science and English but I only have a BTEC maths- Pass. Would I be able to do this particular degree or would I have to reset GCSE maths?

Hmm, I think you'll have to re-sit Maths.

I also have CACHE Level 3 in Childcare and Education and over 3 years experience in working with children of different ages. What exactly would I need to be able to do Child Psychology?

Hi,

Thanks for the rep by the way!

The entry requirements vary depending on which university you want to go to.

One of my choices is Hallam, so I'll put a link to their site, so it can give you some sort of idea on what kind of entry requirements are valid.

UCAS can also help too:

Child psychology isn't a profession (here's a list of the types of professional psychologists), although I think you can become a counseling or educational psychologist who works mostly with kids. Alternatively if you want to be a researcher/lecturer/phd student you can choose to study children. All these careers are very hard to get into, and you can just get into it as easily as you would become a primary school teacher or something similar.

Child psychology at university will be much like a regular psychology degree with more modules within education/developmental psychology/counseling(maybe).

Or seek out counselling qualifications through a college. You can go from start to qualified in 4 years (working with clients in 2) and cost is less than 1 year of uni. Many trainees work with children. I did part of my placement with a youth charity and worked from age 13 + but if your qualification is child orientated you'd be able to work with younger children - mine was adult counselling.
