Psychology buddies lets talk

Is anyone studying psychology?
or is a psychiatrist?
it's so exciting to know what psychiatrist were like in the 19th century they must have been having violent patients back then .

I'm enjoying it thank you! In my second year of uni so it's going alright so far but I've got 3 assignments due next month that I'm yet to start 😂
Hey!

I'm in my 2nd year of Psychology and an aspiring Clinical Psychologist!

It's so interesting but definitely a lot of hard work, there is almost infinite information about the human mind. It's definitely interesting learning about the basis of theory in psychology, and historic studies! A lot of previous studies would not be allowed now due to ethics. If you're interested in the historic psychology I would recommend reading into Freud's journals and case studies, the baby albert studies, and read about the patients of Bedlam psychiatric hospital.

Feel free to ask me any questions about my course :smile:

Hi! I'm also studying Psychology, and I'm currently a 3rd year undergraduate student at Lancaster University! I'm finding it really interesting, and I know from 3 years of studying it that I definitely chose the right course for me. :smile: It is a lot of work, but it is really rewarding, especially when learning about areas that you're particularly interested in! I have had the chance to learn about lots of different historical studies from lots of different psychology areas, and the learning is so broad, so there should definitely be something that you will learn that you will be interested in. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions about the course!

I didn't do a psychology undergraduate, I did a conversion course instead. I didn't have any exams during the conversion or my MSc; they were both coursework based.

Lucky you. Where did you find the conversion course? Was it for psychology the conversion course?

Yeah, I did a PgDip at Aston in psychology. I found it okay, there was only one module that I found quite complex, the rest were fine. I guess I kinda saw the course as a means to end - I had to complete a conversion in order to be accepted onto a more specialised MSc - rather than something I was super interested in. It was more like a general overview of psychology for those who'd never studied it before.

To find the course itself, I'd recommend looking on the BPS website for accredited courses.

So you know the masters conversion course in psychology can you become a psychologist with it or do you have to carry onto a PhD to become a psychologist?

No, you'd need further study to become a qualified psychologist, usually via a professional doctorate

I'd say experience is more important than a conversion course in terms of getting a job, the conversion course is more important academically. Support worker or HCA roles are ideal for getting direct clinical experience.
