The course is aimed at individuals who wish to acquire an in-depth knowledge of clinical psychology in order to enhance their application to training programmes to qualify as a clinical psychologist. Whilst a place on a training programme is not guaranteed, graduates are likely to have richer applications.
In addition to the theoretical component of the programme, the 15-day placement experience allows the student to gain more than an insight into the working practice of clinical psychology. Two dissertations require the student to reflect on experience gained on placement and also to complete a thorough an critical literature review in the area of specialism.
Graduates of the programme may choose to take a career path in pychological research. The School is active in research and enterprise and has a well established base in Psychology. There is an active research and publications arena within the group and links within the wider school and university are encouraged.
Please note that if undertaking a placement, a CRB check must be undertaken, for which a charge applies.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
