Course summary

Course overview

This is an opportunity to develop your knowledge of the psychological models relevant to the practice of clinical psychology and your clinical skills in this area. Experienced clinical psychologists provide much of your academic teaching and act as placement supervisors for your clinical practice development.

You complete training across the lifespan of children and adolescents, working-age adults and older adults, as well as working with special needs and specialist services. The programme provides training across a range of psychological models, including cognitive behavioural, cognitive analytic, psychodynamic and systemic approaches. Indirect interventions are encouraged and opportunities to undertake our innovative organisational placements can be provided. The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology leads to the award of Doctor of Clinical Psychology.

You can find out more about our undergraduate psychology courses here.

Professional accreditation:

The training programme is regularly reviewed and approved through both University procedures and those linked to their professional body, The British Psychological Society (BPS) as well as the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

How you are assessed

You are continually assessed in various ways, completing both formative and summative work, throughout your training. You complete written pieces of work (ranging from case studies and essays through to a doctoral-level research thesis) as well as oral presentations regarding academic topics and clinical cases. You are expected to acquire a range of clinical competencies within your clinical practice modules which are assessed on placement by your placement supervisors. Progression from one year to another is dependent upon the successful completion of the set modules.

Career opportunities:

The programme provides the relevant doctorate qualification for graduates to practise as clinical psychologists in the NHS and wider health and social care system, within both privately and publicly funded positions.
