Course content

The Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych) course provides a comprehensive training programme comprising concurrent academic teaching (on average two days per week) and clinical work placements based mainly in the NHS (on average three days per week). The overarching purpose of the training course is to supply highly competent clinical psychologists for the NHS and related settings.

Please view the full Trainee Person Specification if you are interested in this course.

On successful completion of training you will meet the Health and Care Professions Council's requirements for registration as a Practitioner Psychologist. You will also satisfy the British Psychological Society’s Committee on Training in Clinical Psychology requirements (BPS, CTCP) for becoming a Chartered Psychologist.

You will participate in a broad-based clinical-academic programme, designed and taught by a diverse core team, selected invited external speakers and NHS specialists. The course covers all of the major theoretical and clinical approaches to clinical psychology.

This training course requires you to fulfil two main minimum criteria in order to apply. You need at least a year’s experience of paid relevant clinical-academic work, such as an assistant psychologist in the NHS or a research assistant. And you need strong academic qualifications, i.e. at least an upper 2:1 degree in Psychology (which grants Graduate Basis for Registration with the BPS).

During the training course you will be robustly assessed to evaluate your clinical performance, academic achievement and your ability to integrate these two elements. As this is a doctoral-level programme, you will need to be able to work at this standard and produce an original research thesis by the end of training.

All applications must be made via the Clearing House for Postgraduate Courses in Clinical Psychology, click 'Apply' to find out more.
