Course summary

This three year DEdPsych Doctorate in Educational Psychology training programme prepares students for a professional qualification which will enable them to work in Children’s Services and to provide help with the major developmental and educational problems presented by children to parents, teachers in schools, and in other agencies.

Introducing your degree

Do you want to use your psychological knowledge to help make a difference for children and young people (CYP)? Educational psychologists (EPs) do this every day as they work with CYP in their schools, homes and wider communities. EPs use psychology to help CYP develop their social mental & emotional health, and to learn effectively. Working to help CYP overcome difficulties and develop their potential, EPs use a strengths-based approach that pays attention not just to the CYP, but to the context in which they live and learn.
EPs are also involved in wider activities such as applied research in schools, training and policy development. By applying for and completing our course, you will be to apply for chartered status with the British Psychological Society, and be able to apply to the Health Care Professions Council to use the title of Educational Psychologist.


This DEdPsych Doctorate in Educational Psychology programme meets the requirements for chartered status with BPS, and is approved for registration with the HCPC.
