The DEdPsy facilitates an understanding of the role of Educational Psychologists (EPs) as applied psychologists working with children and young people, their families and allied professionals. It introduces trainee EPs to the most recent developments in educational psychology and professional practice and promotes high level research skills. The location of the DEdPsy at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) provides trainee EPs with the opportunity to engage in research alongside world leaders in the fields of education and psychology, including staff from the Centre for Research in Autism and Education and the Thomas Coram Research Unit.

All of the DEdPsy graduates to date, have secured posts as educational psychologists. Those who take up a UK government-funded bursary are required to work in an English local authority children’s service for a minimum of two years after qualification.

As such they are entitled to register with the HCPC for the protected title of Practitioner Psychologist and to apply for chartered status with the BPS.
