I'm a MSc Psychology student, with aspirations to eventually become a clinical psychologist. I'm on a conversion course that is BPS accredited but I'm not too sure when I can apply for psychology-related jobs down the line.
My thesis deadline is Aug/ealry Sept 2018 and graduation is November - but how early can I realistically apply for assistant psychologist jobs?
I'm aware it's really early, but I just want to know and be organised! Thanks!

Personally I would start sending your CV out now, because even if you don't fit the exact requirements your name is getting out there. From what I've heard in the grape vine is that it's pretty hard to get a job once you finish the total course - probably an influx of people looking - so get started now.
You can always include in your CV/letter that you are going to qualify at a certain time, with the predicted grade just like any other educational qualification.
Some employers like to take the 'fresh recruit' and train them in their own way, so may well be eager to get someone before the end of the course, especially if you are going to be head hunted as a top grade student.
