The Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology offers both PhD and MPhil degrees in applied psychology related to its core areas of interest.
Research projects are usually either placed within the relevant research group or managed as collaboration across groups.
All research students have a main supervisor and a second supervisor.
The topic areas of potential supervisors can be seen on the division's website.
The PhD in Clinical Psychology is suitable for students who wish to study in the area of clinical psychology. It generally involves a three year full time or 6 year part-time research programme where the student can intensively study in the area of their choice supervised by experts in the field. The MPhil usually takes 2 years full time or 4 years part time.
The PhD in Clinical Psychology does not provide a qualification in Clinical Psychology, which is distinct from the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme. The PhD is a qualification showing that you have conducted your research in an area relevant to clinical psychology, for instance, schizophrenia, anxiety, depression or traumatic stress. It is a purely research degree with no training in clinical skills.
