psychology degree apprenticeships / apprenticeships?

Does anyone know how I could enter the psychology world / get a job within there etc without having to go to university?
@Noodlzzz might know, I'm not aware of any specific degree apprenticeships for clinical psychology. There might be some in various areas of counselling perhaps though...?

I'm really interested in psychology and that department, so I was just wondering if there were any others ways into it without going to Uni! I know I couldn't be anything like a clinical psychologist as I'd most likely need a degree! Thanks for responding :smile: I wish there were more options available!

Hi! Thanks for the tag.

Not really any apprenticeships, but there a few options:

1) HCA in psychiatric services
2) counselling courses
3) more standard courses like IAPT or PWP

If you mean psychology as an academic career, than you would need to do at minimum a masters, and realistically almost certainly a PhD, to become an academic researcher and university lecturer. Outside of that, I don't really think there are many "psychology" jobs other than clinical psychologist positions available.
