    what degree should i do for being a clinical psychologist/therapist

    what pathway? Could I do medicine and major in Psych or Neuroscience so I can get a masters?

    or should I do psychology and then a masters in it?

    or would it be better to do neuroscience through medicine, to have more vast knowledge?

    Usually it's a bachelor of psychology with an honours/masters degree (so 6 years in total)

    Please remember that when you're in your fifth or 6th year you will be required to do cbt therapy under the supervision of senior clinical psychologists

    You need to find a degree that is approved by the board of Psychology. To become a psychologist you need to do specific courses and pathways otherwise you won't be accredited. Im doing a psychology course at the moment, I'm doing a bachelor then honours and masters to become a psychologist.
