The DClinPsy programme is competency based and conforms to the accreditation criteria of the British Psychological Society. It has three main components: University based academic teaching, service based practice learning, and clinically relevant research. Course Structure
The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is delivered on a full-time basis over three years.
University based teaching takes place over two semesters: the first (September to January) is based at the University of Lincoln, the second (February to June) is based at the University of Nottingham´s Institute of Work, Health and Organisations. Practice learning takes place throughout the year and is based at placements in services in Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
