Quote From Pjlu:
No Sez, but I have often thought about it and researched the pathway. You know, you mentioned your age is 24 and you have one degree and a PG Dip but really want to go the Psych route. What is stopping you now?

One of the reasons I have chosen not to do the conversion course is to do with my age and circumstances. I am 49 (so old from your perspective-but I don't feel that way), and a 'mid career' teaching professional, mother of three grown children. I found later in life that I absolutely have a passion for psychology, but didn't do it in my undergrad. I first struck it properly in my Education qualifications and postgrad course work units, and found out my passion for it then. Since then I periodically want to toss in my PhD and do psych and start again-but I don't. Mainly because, as Kean Bean and Pineapple pointed out, to use psych in the way many of us want to, you have to go through SO much training-and I am not prepared to do that on top of my present job right now and I am not prepared to toss in the work I have already done for my doctorate. I get myself through this, by promising myself that when I finish this doctorate (in about four years from now-I am part-time), I will either do some foundation psych courses, (just for myself), or train as a life line counsellor and volunteer to help out and be involved in counselling in this way. It will be both my reward and a way of giving back .

But YOU are 24. You have the time to try this out if you wish. Why not? If you don't like it, you can always change it. No one expects someone at 24 to know everything they want to do in life. Many of us learnwho we are and what we want, as we try things. Good luck, Sez, and go for it.


Thank you. That is very true. I hope you end up doing want you want to do, at least in some way :)

Yeh I guess if I don't at least try, I'll always be thinking 'what if?'...

Hi. Thanks for all your comments.

I'm not too sure on what I want to do as a career, but I'm thinking of doing a conversion course in Psychology as it will (hopefully) give me a lot more opportunities. I loved A-level Psychology and if I could go back, would probably have chosen it for degree level.

Hi. I'm new to the forum but I really don't know what to do next. I'm 24 and have a degree in Criminology and Sociology and a PG Dip in Applied Criminology. Looking back I never really knew what I wanted to do but have always been interested in Psychology but decided to go down the Criminology route. I'm now thinking of doing another course, either an Investigitive Psychology masters or a conversion course in psychology. What are the main career paths for Psychology graduates compared to someone like me who just has a social sciences degree? I like the idea of being a psychologist but it would mean another course after the conversion and more money. Is anyone else in the same position? I'd love for someone to give their guidance or share their experiences. I can do anything I want with my life but I hate having no clue with what to do!

Thanks
