Psychology conversion career prospectsWatch
My question is in regards to the assistant psychologist job. Am I as eligible as bachelor's graduates are to work as one even when employers ask for a bachelor's qualification? Does the conversion equal the bachelor in terms of academic experience? And in general, can I apply for any job normally aimed at bachelor's graduates?
Also does it make a difference whether the award title is MSc or MEd? I was thinking MEd would be a better option for two reasons: 1) I want to progress onto the Doctorate in Educational Psychology and thought this would prep me better and 2) that it will probably increase my chances of landing jobs in the education sector. Would the MEd title actually hurt my changes of landing a job or does it not matter as long as it's BPS accredited?
