The Applied Psychology (Clinical Specialism) programme provides training for assistant/associate psychologists (or equivalent) to become a more effective and strategic part of the clinical psychology workforce. The Diploma provides students with skills in psychological assessment and circumscribed interventions. The MSc develops skills in conducting health service research.
Opportunities for Careers
Whilst undertaking and graduating from the programme does not confer the threshold entry award for autonomous professional practice in clinical psychology, it does:
* Promote and quality-assure the knowledge and skills required to provide low intensity psychological interventions, and
* Provide excellent preparatory training for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programmes.
* Four compulsory modules:
* Clinical Presentations
* Foundations of Clinical Practice
* Low Intensity Psychological Interventions and CBT
* Psychological Assessment
Comprises the above modules in Year 1, plus a dissertation module in Year 2.
Contact time is half a day per week in the MSc year.
Units of assessment are associated with each module. These include two case studies, a critical literature review, a clinical practice portfolio and, for the MSc, a dissertation.
Essential criteria are as follows: 1) A first class or 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent recognised qualification, which confers the graduate basis for registration with the British Psychological Society; 2) By time of entry, applicants must have an assistant/associate psychologist post, or comparable, within a health care setting; and 3) Applicants must also receive supervision from a qualified clinical psychologist. A maximum number of applicants can be accepted each year. Applications will be ranked based on quality of previous qualifications and experience.
Please note: the application deadline for the September 2012 intake is 20 July 2012.
Additional Information for International Students
Non-EU international applicants are likely to require a work visa to secure an employment post as an assistant/associate psychologist (or equivalent).
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.
