Ok this may just be one of my many blond moments , but I'm really struggling with this. I'm looking at the courses of the Open University, I studied in the care provided with the intention of gaining qualifications while learning to work instead of being a " student " in the stereotypical sense . I just finished NVQ Level 3 CCLD and now I want to get a BA ( Hons ) but now I want to go to Psychology as my intention from the beginning was to become a child psychologist . I looked at the open university and speaks undergraduate and post graduate and points at levels 1 , 2 and 3 , and I'm totally confused as I was waiting for my NVQ would be included in my BA as previous work , so it would not to work as hard in the BA not because I'm lazy I have been doing childcare for almost four years , so it's not that.
Anyway my question really is ...
It is an undergraduate my degree ?
What graduate courses to continue more like going to a professional field such as psychology ?
And if I were to get a degree in psychology would this be enough to get a job as a psychologist or if I have to do a postgraduate course ?

A college degree is a first degree lasting three years full time ( four years in Scotland ) . While a graduate degree is taken after completing a bachelor's degree , and a Ph.D. ( three years ) , PhD ( three years ) or Masters (one year ) .
To become a clinical psychologist who had to study for a PhD graduate specialized couse ( D.ClinPsy ) , which is approved by the British Psychological Society after studying your degree.

a student is considered rather low degree of bachelor , so yes , while obtaining his degree , which would be an undergraduate .
a graduate degree is nothing after graduation , and I know that psychologists have to get a Ph.D. in order to practice.
