In general you would do an undergrad, then a Masters then a PhD.
Sometimes you can skip the Masters depending on which PhD you go for and your marks/experience. You can also instead go to do the DClinPsy
It really depends on what you’re wanting to do with psychology as it’s a broad field.

I still don’t know what 4 years you’re talking about. Most of the psych degrees in the UK are 3 years full time, add on an optional masters that quite a few people do for 1 year and then 3+years for a PhD or doctoral degree you’re looking at 6-7years. Generally quicker if you go down the PhD route, but as a warning the PhD would allow you to work academically but not clinically. For that you’d need a professional doctorate that requires additional experience. I’ve known people take 12+ years to complete that journey.
