My training on the Clinical Psychology programme has been one of the best experiences of my life. Training in England, moving to a new country and working within a different health care system than that of my home country, has provided me with a wealth of knowledge in a range of therapeutic modalities, psychological applications , and the opportunity to work with a diverse range of client groups. The training has provided me with the knowledge to think critically and reflect upon my profession’s and wider society’s influence on services and clinical practice.The course has been challenging, involving research projects and high quality clinical assignments, but he University has offered me exceptional support, with a manager who has offered the most valuable guidance and supervision. My year group has also been very supportive and many of my fellow trainees have become lifelong friends"
