I will be applying to do either the BSc Psychology or BSc Psychology with Counselling to start in February.
As they are both BPS accredited I intended to make my choice of course based on module choices. Largely I would chose the modules which are tied to the Psychology and Counselling degree even if I were to register on the straight Psychology module - the only difference was that I would have selected the Childhood Psychology option at Level 1. However since this module does not run in February and I would have to take 'Introducing the Social Sciences' D102 anyway I would basically end up studying the exact same modules which are compulsory for the Psychology and Counselling degree.
My question is which is likely to be viewed as the better option by employers? Are there any other benefits to taking one or the other?
My intention is to use this degree eventually to work in mental health setting, ideally to go on to train as a clinical psychologist (the end goal is a long way off and this is my first step!)
