Applicants should have a minimum of a good upper second-class Honours degree in Psychology. The degree needs to confer eligibility for Graduate Basis for Charted Membership. It is important that candidates show us that they can undertake work at a Doctoral level.
A “good” upper second-class Honours degree shall normally mean an average of at least 67% (or equivalent in other jurisdictions) across all years of study.
Applicants who have achieved an upper second-class Honours degree below this level will need to offer clear evidence of their academic capacity in their application, supported by an academic referee who has monitored your work and can clearly demonstrate that your academic achievements underestimate your academic abilities.
Applicants with a lower second-class Honours degree will not usually be accepted on the programme unless there is unequivocal evidence of subsequent academic achievement (in an appropriate scientific discipline) equivalent to a good upper second-class Honours degree.
It is essential to gain some relevant clinical experience in this field before applying to the programme.
