Completing this course would make you eligible to apply for Assistant Psychologist roles, which would count as that 'relevant experience' the doctorate courses look for. You could also apply for Research Assistant roles. Relevant work experience is generally seen as work that involves working with client groups that Psychologists might work with, and work that involves working alongside Psychologists. As an example, my work experience (beginning during my Psychology BSc) has been: Learning disability support worker, volunteer research assistant, mental health support worker in the NHS, complex case worker with people with substance misuse issues and Assistant Psychologist in the same drug and alcohol service. My doctorate applications were unsuccessful this year, but I will re-apply for next year. I also did counselling training alongside my other studies and work, so am now also a trainee counsellor alongside my AP role.
