This course is for you if you’re a Psychology graduate with an interest in clinical training, and you want to strengthen your credentials for the competitive entry process. The course is run jointly by the Department of Psychology and the Coventry-Warwick Clinical Psychology Doctorate programme.
Currently, we can only consider you if you’re a UK/EU student with a Psychology degree that provides Graduate Basis for Chartership (British Psychological Society). This policy reflects that UK doctoral training in clinical psychology is available primarily to UK/EU citizens.
You will study a range of modules on clinical research methods, evidence-based practice in adult, older adult and child/adolescent populations and clinical case analysis. You will also conduct a six-month research/audit placement in the NHS as an honorary assistant psychologist, which is particularly valuable if you’re considering a career in the clinical profession.
Many of our graduates have proceeded to NHS assistant psychologist or other equivalent posts and have then successfully progressed to DClin courses, including Coventry-Warwick, Institute of Psychiatry (Kings), Oxford, Manchester, Surrey, and Trinity College Dublin.
