You must have the British Psychological Society Graduate Basis for Chartering (GBC) and provide proof of this. This usually takes the form of a single or joint 2.1 or above Honours degree in Psychology; however, candidates who have gained GBC by other means will be considered. Additional practical clinical or research experience of working with children or adults with mental health problems or learning disabilities is an advantage. We do not consider applications from final-year undergraduates.
Months of entry

- In common with most clinical psychology programmes, the cognitive behavioural approach to psychotherapy is dominant but there is also a substantial teaching input based upon other psychotherapeutic approaches.

- Psychologists in departments throughout this area are closely involved in the programme, including placement provision, teaching, research supervision and coordination of teaching modules.
