    hey guys i am doing Bsc Psychology first year. I hate my uni but i like my course, so i wanna switch uni for 2nd year. However the other uni also offers forensic psychology. I am thinkin about speciallising in clinical/psychtherapy later(doing a PHD or MA), would it be possible for me to specialise in clinical/psychotherapy after Bsc forensic psychology?

    Also, i have to apply using UCAS, can i use my old statement?(i'll change it)
    where do i state that i want to start from year 2?

    good advice= possible +rep:yep:

    Providing your undergraduate is BPS acredited, then it can gain you access to the Clinical doctorate (it's a doctorate, not PhD), as long as you have the work experience required. If it is NOT, you will have to do an extra year conversion course to gain GBR.

    Generally, no, you cannot use your old personal statement, as it is classed as plagerism.

    No. Technically speaking, to be a Clinical Psychologist, you need:

    1. A BPS acredited undergraduate Psychology degree. (If not, add 1 year conversion course)

    2. Work experience. Typically Assistant Psychologist/GMHW/Volunteering jobs. This is the hard part

    3. A Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (3 years)

    You don't NEED a MA, it's just that many applicants do have them. There are various routes of entry; some more academic, some more vocational.

    Academic Doctorate = PhD (Doctor of Philosophy)
    Vocational Doctorate = MD, D.Clin.Psychol.

    Well, I'm fairly sure that's how it works.

    i think when you add a uni choice on your ucas application, your asked for point of entry. i.e. 1st, 2nd, 3rd
