DClinPsy Clinical Psychology

Our Clinical Psychology doctorate integrates clinical, academic and research practice to achieve the highest quality of professional training. We offer one of the largest and longest established Clinical Psychology training programmes in the UK, and have gained a national reputation for excellence.

The training programme is made up of four interconnecting components: the academic and research programmes, clinical placements, and the assessment process. These four components are organised so that each complements and informs the others, enabling the trainee to integrate their learning across theory, research and practice in order to develop the key competencies pertinent to each year of training.  Underpinning all of these components is a commitment to the support of trainees’ personal and professional development and to promoting diversity and equal opportunities throughout all aspects of the programme.
