Course content

Graduate from this programme and you'll be eligible for Chartered Clinical Psychologist status, allowing you to practise as a Clinical Psychologist within the NHS.

The content provides a theoretical introduction to a wide range of clinical problems and approaches, together with basic clinical skills and a variety of practical experiences. There are places for up to 23 trainees per year.

This is a three-year, full-time programme offering clinical placements throughout the year, an academic course and research requirements including a 25,000 word dissertation.

Local NHS clinical psychology services on Merseyside offer a particularly rich variety of specialist placements and we'd urge you to gain as much experience as you can within them.

This could include:

  • Ashworth High Secure Hospital
  • the Windsor Clinic (Addictions)
  • the Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery

You can also work with individual practitioners in other areas including:

  • family therapy
  • paediatric liaison
  • brain injury rehabilitation
  • spinal injury
  • eating disorders

As an option you can undertake a twelve-month specialist placement in Year Three. It may also be possible to combine two of the shorter placements into a second 12-month specialist child and family placement.
