    Check uni entry requirements as they will be quite clear about what the requirements are. To work in research you will need a masters if not a PhD. For clinical psychology check out this link:

    As above - becoming a psychologist requires more study (either a doctorate or a masters, depending on what type). A psychology degree can open doors to general, non-specific graduate schemes as well
