The Abnormal and Clinical Psychology course aims to provide a high level of understanding of the theory and practice of clinical psychology within healthcare settings and prepares students for professional clinical training.

Key Features of the Abnormal and Clinical Psychology

Performance:

  • One of four Psychology departments to achieve a 100% 4* rating (maximum score possible) for the reach and significance of its work in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. Based on this measure Psychology at Swansea was ranked 14th (out of 82) in the UK.
  • Our Psychology department is ranked 5th in the UK for Graduate Prospects by The Times and Sunday Times University League Tables 2018.

Teaching and Employability:

  • State-of-the-art technology, with over 20 general purpose research rooms and numerous specialised testing facilities
  • Majority of teaching carried out by practicing and/or qualified Clinical Psychologists and related professionals
  • Unique range of modules offered
  • Proven track record of assisting students’ progression towards clinical psychology training as well as range of clinical mental health-related occupational roles
  • Numerous NHS clinical based placements secured, providing valuable experience on the journey to becoming a Clinical Psychologist.

Clinical psychology focuses on the challenges faced by people with clinical, mental or physical (neuropsychological) health conditions. The role of the clinical psychologist is to work with these individuals and attempt to improve their quality of life.

The Abnormal and Clinical Psychology course will greatly enhance students’ suitability for professional clinical training, for example a three year DClin Clinical Psychology programme at a BPS accredited training centre.

Entry onto a clinical psychology doctorate training programme is extremely competitive, with candidates usually expected to have acquired training and experience beyond degree level. 

The MSc degree provides a valuable academic foundation for future doctoral training in clinical psychology, it is largely theory-based and is designed to address core topics in abnormal and clinical psychology.

Clinical training courses also look for evidence of clinical experience with relevant client groups.

Swansea University does not provide this directly, but work experience (paid and voluntary) may be available through the local NHS Psychology Services. Opportunities may also be available locally through independent and private sector organisations (e.g. Mind Cymru, Headway, private rehabilitation services, etc.). These opportunities are regularly advertised and students are supported in making the most of them. 

Please note this course does not lead to a clinical qualification recognised by the British Psychological Society.

This programme enables practitioners to gain a formally recognised standard of competence in cardiology. It is taught and run by advanced clinicians, allied health professionals and service improvement specialists. 

It is designed for General Practitioners, Nurse Specialists and other medical professionals working in the specialty clinical environment.

The structure of the programme is specifically designed to encourage the development of the specialist practitioner role, by encouraging collaborative clinical work-based training between the practitioner and the clinical mentor. 

The emphasis is on critical thinking, reflective learning and the practice of evidence-based medicine. Students are enabled to directly apply their learning to their current and future roles.

This programme is delivered at The Ridge Medical Practice.

What you will study

Each module is worth 30 level 7 credits; this nominally equates to 300 hours of work. 120 credits are required to achieve Postgraduate Diploma level. 

There are 3 clinical modules, each takes 6 months to complete:

  • Ischaemic Heart Disease
  • Hypertension and Arrhythmia
  • Heart Failure and Valvular Disease

Plus a non-clinical module:

  • Applied Methodology

Learning and assessment

A variety of teaching methods are employed in the programme to enable students to fulfil the varied modular learning outcomes.

Face-to-face tuition: this occurs at the beginning of each module in Bradford. Tutors are available by email if required during placement periods to handle learning queries. Tutors are clinical practitioners (consultant specialists and PwSIs).

Work-based learning: this forms the central part of the programme of study, in the form of clinical placements – each six month module should contain at least 14 weeks of hands-on practical study in a secondary care environment. This learning is undertaken on placement in the locality, under the supervision of a clinical mentor. Students approach the mentor in the first instance: they must be a GMC registered consultant/Advanced clinician in whose name appears on a national register of practitioners, and who has teaching experience. The clinical mentor will receive a specific Mentor Guide including advice and support from the course management team in fulfilling the role of mentor. 

Guided reading (given by tutor and mentor): this complements the placement and enables you to fulfil the theoretical background necessary for your placement activities, and prepares you for your written and presentational assignments. e-learning: the virtual learning environment gives access to the peer group and tutors during placement, facilitating learning through clinical discussion, as well as providing support.

Local research and application: The Applied Methodology module involves working within the healthcare community to apply 3 different methodologies; learning takes place during the activities of researching and reading information, planning, preparation and application of these.

Assessment is designed to enable you to have a rounded measurement of the skills needed for your role in the healthcare community. Clinical competence is verified through mentor signature after observation (by mentor and where appropriate other relevant clinical professionals) and discussion during the placement periods.

The issues of ethics and informed consent are an integrated part of the students’ daily practice, and it is implicit in all the modules that there is conformity to the usual standards and guidelines in these areas.

Optionality is available to students studying for the Certificate in their choice of modules. It is available to students studying for the Diploma in the choice of cases for the written reflective studies and the presentations.

Each module has a number of set learning outcomes, and it is up to you, together with your self-identified local clinical mentor, to identify your learning needs and generate the training plan to fulfil these learning outcomes. You will have a teaching day on the clinical content of each module, after which you will attend at least 14 sessions in suitable clinics of your choice over a period of 6 months (clinical attachment). At the end of this period you will have to demonstrate your competency in managing patients, and an ability to critically reflect on your own practice.

Clinical competence is verified through mentor signature after observation (by mentor and where appropriate other relevant clinical professionals) and discussion during the placement periods.

The issues of ethics and informed consent are an integrated part of the students’ daily practice, and it is implicit in all the modules that there is conformity to the usual standards and guidelines in these areas.

Optionality is available to students studying for the Certificate in their choice of modules. It is available to students studying for the Diploma in the choice of cases for the written reflective studies and the presentations.

Each module has a number of set learning outcomes, and it is up to you, together with your self-identified local clinical mentor, to identify your learning needs and generate the training plan to fulfil these learning outcomes. You will have a teaching day on the clinical content of each module, after which you will attend at least 14 sessions in suitable clinics of your choice over a period of 6 months (clinical attachment). At the end of this period you will have to demonstrate your competency in managing patients, and an ability to critically reflect on your own practice.

This programme enables practitioners to gain a formally recognised standard of competence in gynaecology.

It is taught and run by advanced clinicians, allied health professionals and service improvement specialists and is designed for General Practitioners, Nurse Specialists and other medical professionals working in the specialty clinical environment.

The structure of the programme is specifically designed to encourage the development of the specialist practitioner role, by encouraging collaborative clinical work-based training between the practitioner and the clinical mentor. 

The emphasis is on critical thinking, reflective learning and the practice of evidence-based medicine. Students are enabled to directly apply their learning to their current and future roles.

This programme is delivered at The Ridge Medical Practice.

What you will study

Each module is worth 30 level 7 credits; this nominally equates to 300 hours of work. 120 credits are required to achieve Diploma level.

There are 3 clinical modules, each taking 6 months to complete:

  • Abnormal Uterine Bleeding, Pelvic Pain and Fertility
  • Family Planning, Sexual Health and Cervical Pathology
  • Menopausal Issues, Gynaecological Cancers, Incontinence and Prolapse

Plus a non-clinical module:

  • Applied Methodology

Learning and assessment

A variety of teaching methods are employed in the programme to enable students to fulfil the varied modular learning outcomes.

Face-to-face tuition: this occurs at the beginning of each module in Bradford. Tutors are available by email if required during placement periods to handle learning queries. Tutors are clinical practitioners (consultant specialists and PwSIs).

Work-based learning: this forms the central part of the programme of study, in the form of clinical placements – each six month module should contain at least 14 weeks of hands-on practical study in a secondary care environment. This learning is undertaken on placement in the locality, under the supervision of a clinical mentor. Students approach the mentor in the first instance: they must be a GMC registered consultant/Advanced clinician in whose name appears on a national register of practitioners, and who has teaching experience. The clinical mentor will receive a specific Mentor Guide including advice and support from the course management team in fulfilling the role of mentor. 

Guided reading (given by tutor and mentor): this complements the placement and enables you to fulfil the theoretical background necessary for your placement activities, and prepares you for your written and presentational assignments. e-learning: the virtual learning environment gives access to the peer group and tutors during placement, facilitating learning through clinical discussion, as well as providing support.

Local research and application: The Applied Methodology module involves working within the healthcare community to apply 3 different methodologies; learning takes place during the activities of researching and reading information, planning, preparation and application of these.

Assessment is designed to enable you to have a rounded measurement of the skills needed for your role in the healthcare community. Clinical competence is verified through mentor signature after observation (by mentor and where appropriate other relevant clinical professionals) and discussion during the placement periods.
