    clinical psych-takes 3 yrs post grad and to get onto a course u are expected to have 2 yrs of relevant experience post degree!
    pay starts at 20 grand but at top level you can get 60 grand
    forensic psych takes 3 years as well and will require relevant experince and reading in forensic field.
    pay is the same as clinical and main employer is the prison seervice. Dont believe the fiction books...u'll rarely be profiling criminals!
    has one of the highest professional burn out rates
    teaching psych u need a psych degree with the course being at least 50% psych. also expected to have at least 2 weeks of experience in teaching that age group. i've looked for psych pgce's and havent found one yet but it is a growing field. PGCE takes a year and its a hell of a lot of work. then you have a 2 years probatioanry then ur a fully fledged teacher!
    pay starts at 18 grand

    Go to www.bps.org.uk. Warning though... it sounds like your degree may not be BPS accredited, which means you'd have to do extra training.
