Routes and Experience for a Clinical PsychologistWatch
In September I'm doing a 3 year undergraduate course in Psychology and really want to follow a clinical psychology path after this. I'm not too sure where I could find experience to get onto this career path. I know that these courses are extremely competitive so I just wanted to know if there was any volunteering or skills I could improve on to increase my chances
Clinical psychologists work with a wide variety of clients. Those with acquired brain injuries, schizophrenia, children with learning disabilities, adults with autism etc. As long as you're volunteering or working with clients in that capacity then that'll be good experience for you.
A support worker role might be possible. You could get a bank or agency role that would give you very flexible hours, working around your studies.
Getting an assistant psychologist role seems to be the key to be successful in that field.
