Course summary

Overview

The DECPsy programme integrates three key elements - academic knowledge, research ability and professional practice. Through research-led teaching, we aim to enable our students to deliver evidence-based and innovative psychological practice with children and young people, their families and other professionals. We also strive to conduct rigorous practice-based research in relation to the developmental, learning and mental health needs of children and young people aged 0-25 years. We are located within the UCL Division of Psychology and Language Sciences, a world leading integrated department of applied psychology, focusing on the implementation of ground-breaking research to improve development, education, and mental and physical wellbeing in individuals and social groups. We use a broad range of scientific approaches to advance understanding and practice across these domains. The department has an exceptional track record of influencing policy in the delivery of health, education, and social care. This programme is full-time for 3 years. There is no part-time option.

Careers–

All EP trainees that receive a government funded place and bursary commit to work for a minimum of two years full-time equivalent in a local authority in England immediately following graduation.

Employability

To date, all DECPsy graduates have been successful in their application for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), so have been able to start independent practice immediately on completion of training. In addition, all applications for chartership to the British Psychological Society (BPS) have been successful, a recognition of the high standards of professional competence that have been achieved over the course of training.
