I am interested in clinical and neuro psychology. If these two don't work out then I'd prolly go for counselling psychology.

well, it isn't necessary. atleast not in the UK. if your degree isn't a first class honours then it is recommended to do a masters.
otherwise, after completing your bachelors you need work experience and then apply for DClinPsy.

in other countries i think it is mandatory to do a Masters.

I did my BSc in Psychology with Counselling, which I completed in 2019. I am now working as an Assistant Psychologist in a drug and alcohol service and have applied for the DClinPsy (Professional doctorate in Clinical Psychology) program.

Hello, I've just finished my MSc Psychology course at Arden University.

There is a great article about this on the British Psychological Society website which is well worth a read https://www.bps.org.uk/public/become...ons-psychology

In order to be a fully qualified 'psychologist' in a field you need to complete doctorate level study

Hi there,

My name is Ivaylo and I'm a Student Ambassador at Coventry University, I'm also a MSc Health Psychology student.


I'm happy to hear that you are interested in clinical psychology as I myself am an aspiring clinical psychologist. To become a clinical psychologist you need to:

1. Take either an undergraduate (first) degree in psychology, or an undergraduate degree in a different subject followed by a psychology conversion course. Make sure that your psychology degree or conversion course is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).

2.Get a lot of experience that relates to clinical psychology (usually several years’ worth).

3.Take a clinical psychology doctorate (a higher level degree), which again needs to be accredited by the BPS. This combines university study with actual work.

Hope that helps!
Ivaylo

Same here with clinical and forensic! I'm leaning towards health psychology as I find that the most interesting. There are also so many different fields that psychology appeals to. I.e. Market research that are defo something to consider as well.

Hey hey! I’m not sure as of yet, but I’d love to either do a masters in clinical neuroscience or psychological research or go into aviation psychology! Either way, I’m also in the same boat as you since there’s a whole world of interesting careers to go into
