Question by suzanne s: whats the difference between clinical and counselling psychology?
…also, whats the difference between a Ba and Bsc in psychology?…i know there isnt that much of a diffrence apart from the Bsc is more ‘sciency’…For my A levels i’ve done English, Media and Philosophy & Ethics, so would it be a wise idea to go for a Bsc? or would it be completely impossible to grasp it?…id like to pursue a career in clinical psychology so even IF i do a BA, would it be ok?

I used to know this! If you dont’ get any answers, email me and I will look it up for you in my text book from last symester.
I don’t know the BA and BSC, the last one probably has more sciences.
If you want a career in pyschology there are many routes and a BA is not enough. You can take your BA and than you need to specialize in an area. When you are ready, you become a registered psychologist by writing the exam and doing certain critera, your schooling only qualifies you to take the registered psychologist exams.
I would not recommend it for a career personally. It is up to you, but often you get very low paying jobs. You can work for the government or in a prison or do contract work. But most other jobs pay very little. I am taking my psychology and than going to take nursing.
