Course Summary

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.

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).

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.
