    The MSc has two strands: Psychodynamic and Systemic. Trainees are required to choose which training they are interested in before they apply and must have completed an introductory level training in that therapeutic model. The programme enhances eligibility for accreditation with UKCP.
    Trainees have the option of taking either an MSc or Postgraduate Diploma. The primary teaching and clinical experience will be in the chosen therapy model, but there is a commitment to shared training in both integrative and research modules. In addition, MSc trainees write a research project during the second year.

    The aim of the programme is to develop participants clinical and theoretical knowledge and experience of psychoanalytic psychotherapy within their existing professional discipline.

    UK requirements for international applications

    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.

    Program requirements

    The Programmes Systemic strand will cover core and advanced theories and skills, and will not be taught at a basic or introductory level. It is intended for trainees who have such basic knowledge and skills who wish to become more specialised or advanced practitioners and or researchers. Successful applicants to the course will need to have met the following criteria: * Preliminary training in Systemic practice. Normally this would mean at least a years preliminary formal systemic psychotherapy training (successful completion of a foundation course or equivalent). * Clinical experience using a systemic approach. Normally this would mean an intermediate level course that includes a minimum of 60 hours of supervised practice. Applications will be considered from those who have not completed a formal intermediate level training but who can provide evidence of appropriate clinical and educational experience. * A first degree, or a previous qualification at an equivalent level. This is required by the University of Exeter for enrolment in a postgraduate programme and is important to ensure capacity to complete academic course work, most of which will be done through self-directed assignments. * A recognised qualification in a profession involving the care of people with mental health problems, such as Clinical Psychology, Psychiatry, Mental Health Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Social Work, Counselling (with membership of BAC). The Programme will assume basic knowledge of topics such as the diagnosis of mental health problems, ethical practice and the capacity of the trainee to observe basic ethical, safety and reporting procedures in carrying out a course of therapy. * Normally the applicant will also be working in settings in which they can be working systemically with clients. Trainees must have the approval of their manager in releasing them from some of their normal duties for the duration of the Programme. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL iBT® test: 90 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

    Accreditation

    Exeter is a top UK University, according to all four of the main higher education league tables

    Each league tables ranks more than 100 UK higher education institutions.

    The Times and the Sunday Times Good University Guide ranks Exeter in 8th position. It says: Exeter is one of Britains most popular universities in terms of first-choice applications, not only in its traditional strong suit, the arts, but increasingly in the sciences and social sciences.

    The Sunday Times in 2012 named Exeter 'Sunday Times University of the Year 2012/13'.

    It said: 'Exeters success as The Sunday Times University of the Year is richly deserved. Shortlisted for the top award no less than four times in the past decade, it has consistently embodied the very best in British higher education. A key player regionally, nationally and internationally, it has responded to the challenge of £9,000 fees by raising its game more than any other university. Students are benefitting from £380m of investment in facilities social as well as academic timed to come on stream at just this moment. This has translated into its highest ever league table ranking (seventh) and outstanding ratings from students for teaching quality, assessment and feedback. More than four in five leave with a first or 2:1 and very few drop out. It is not hard to see why.'

    This years Guardian league table lists Exeter in 12th position out of 120 higher education institutions. It says: One of the lesser-known recipes for happiness is to live in a place where other people choose to go on holidayAdd to that the fact that the Streatham Campus is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country and that Exeter is rated one of the best universities in the UK for "ents", and it's no wonder that increases in applications far exceed the national average.Exeter has an excellent academic reputation.

    The Complete University Guide published in the Independent lists Exeter in 10th place.

    Exeter is one of the top 150 universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education's World University Rankings.

    The University is ranked 168th in the QS World University Rankings.
