Clinical Psychology

University of East Anglia · Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences

Entry requirements

All applicants must have the Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) as defined by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Evidence of this should be submitted at the time of application. If you are unsure as to whether your undergraduate programme was accredited by the BPS, and therefore grants GBC, you can check by visiting the BPS webpages. Some individuals who do not have GBC may be able to apply for this via the special case criteria with the BPS, while others may have to complete a further postgraduate conversion course; again, further information about conversion courses can be found on the BPS webpages. Final year undergraduates who are completing a course that grants GBC can be considered if they meet our criteria. Please visit the University's website for further information.
