    Ive currently got a bsc in psychology and was wondering if there was any chance of becoming a neurologist with this type of degree. Can someone help please

    If after a three-year, ostensibly 'scientific' degree—and well-nigh two decades since the advent of Google—you're still incapable of conducting the most basic of independent research: probably not.

    You would have to do graduate medicine, and then specialise in neurology.

    You’d need to be a doctor.Neurology training requires a medical degree, then completion of a foundation programme (2 years), then Core Medical Training (now 2, but will be 3, years)/MRCP(UK) and higher training in neurology (5 years). Neurology is also a relatively academic speciality; most neurologists, in big centres at least, have a higher research doctorate - usually taken during the higher training - concerning the neurosciences. You’re welcome.

    You have to do a medicine degree (MBBS) first to qualify as a doctor which you can do a graduate course (4 years) or undergraduate (5 years).
    Then do 2 years of junior doctor training (foundation year 1, foundation year 2).
    Then its core medical training. This was originally 2 years long and now its been increased to 3. and then.. go into neurology training, not sure how long this is

    This is TSR isn't it? I think you misspelled 'neurosurgery' there.

    Woohoo! A budding neurologist?! PM me if you have any questions!

    And as above, I hope you haven't misspelt neurosurgery
