    I’ve recently graduated with a 2:1 in psychology but I’m really struggling on what to do next... I’ve been applying for jobs but not having much luck with anything directly related to my degree, I’d need further study, which I am considering! I’m just baffled with all the courses available. I like the sounds of mental health nursing, cbt and things like that, but with cbt I’m not sure if the courses lead to becoming a qualified cognitive behavioural therapist..... and with nursing would I have to go onto a pre registered post grad course as I have no previous nursing experience? There aren’t many pre reg in my area just normal nursing courses which I can’t seem to apply for without experience etc. Please help!!

    MAybe you could get a part-time job somewhere to earn some money and then look for volunteering opportunities for when you're not working to build up your experience. Do that for a year then start applying for the "proper" jobs you're interested in as you'll have some experience.
