Heads up for the budding shrink
Public universities offer Psychology as a major nowadays in Bangladesh. Out of these, the programs at the University of Dhaka and Jagannath University particularly stand out. However, many major private universities are lagging behind. This does make it difficult for a lot of students to get into quality courses in the country. However, if you've set your sights on applying outside, then colleges in the States, the UK, Canada and Australia are all feasible options after you've weighed out where exactly you'd like to study, how much you're willing to spend on your undergraduate program, and completing standard testing such as IELTS or SATs.
If you do plan on working outside Bangladesh or pursuing your Master's elsewhere, it is important to also complete research work or an internship to back up your undergraduate education. If you wish to study outside after your Bachelor's make sure to once again pursue the relevant testing, i.e., IELTS or GED according to the nation you're applying to.
MASTER'S AND BEYOND
Students in the Bachelor's program can complete their Master's in Clinical, Counselling, Educational or Organisational psychology tracks. These subjects are now available at the University of Dhaka and Jagannath University. Students can alternatively do their Master's in Psychology as well (no subfield) and then pursue their higher studies abroad in any of the subfields of psychology If you were finishing your Master's in Psychology in 2015, your next step would be to get enrolled in any program in these tracks at home or abroad.
ANNUAL SALARIES WORLDWIDE
According to Tarun Kanti Gayen, clinical psychologist and Chief Executive of CREA, Bangladesh has been advancing in psychological research and intervention. With new positions in organisational/industrial psychology with the growth of corporate culture, and wider awareness of mental illnesses, the demand for psychologists in Bangladesh is greater than ever. While counselling, for example for drug abusers, has been a heard-of career track for a couple of decades now, educational psychology is making its big break in recent years. Let's look at the highest paying salaries for psychologists worldwide.
