Course content

Studying Clinical Psychology opens the door to a career which is infinitely varied, enabling you to undertake clinical work with a broad range of people experiencing a very diverse range of mental health difficulties. Clinical Psychologists not only seek to alleviate mental distress; they also work actively to promote psychological health and wellbeing.

In addition to direct clinical work with people, you are also likely to be able to undertake service-related research, and provide consultation and supervision to other mental health professionals, teams and services.

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 a national reputation for excellence and innovative practice.

Our programme team is made up of senior Clinical Psychologists who bring a wealth of experience in clinical practice, and draw upon a broad range of different therapeutic modalities, to inform their teaching and research interests.
