To be a clinical psychologist, MPhil is must. For psychologist, masters is minimum education qualification in respective field and PhD is highly desirable.

Dear Aspirant,

If you are comparing salaries and then thinking of making a career as a Psychologist, then you should avoid this field.

Money making career is only in books and theories.

However definitely you can earn a decent income which will depend on your qualifications, skills, experience.

If you get attached to a hospital, NGO, school, then you may get a steady income.

Best wishes
