      Right now I’m technically still a student, so not very much! I get paid for the time I spend teaching, and get some money from the university to cover my accommodation costs. But once I’ve finished my PhD and get a job, hopefully my salary will get bigger.

      Before tax etc., I earn about £35,000/year. This is my first job after my PhD (where I earned about £15,000/year).

      At the moment, I am still a student so I don’t earn very much!! Once I have finished my PhD, I will be a doctor and will earn a lot more then!

      The pay that we get as educational psychologists is all publicly available you can see it here -https://neu.org.uk/advice/soulbury-officers

      Most educational psychologists pay starts at around £37,000 and goes up to £55,000 a year – because I’ve been an educational psychologist for a few years, my pay is near the top of that.

      If you become a Senior Educational Psychologists or even an Principal (someone who manages a whole team) your pay can reach around £69,000 a year.
