About

The Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology in the School of Medicine offers the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, University of Nottingham

The Division of Psychiatry and Applied Psychology offers the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology as a professional training course in clinical psychology.

This course is run in collaboration with the University of Lincoln and in partnership with the clinical psychology services of three local NHS Trusts – Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.

The programme leads to the award of a DClinPsy doctoral degree. The purpose of the course is to train people to become skilled, clinical psychologists, eligible to be registered with the HCPC and chartered by the BPS, who are able to work effectively within the NHS and equivalent organisations.

Graduates from the course will be confident in using research methods to answer clinical questions, have organisational and service evaluation skills and be aware of priority groups within the NHS.

Please note:

  • all trainees must pass all components of the programme. There is no provision for the accreditation of prior learning (APL or APEL).
  • due to NHS funding arrangements, the programme is not in a position to offer places to non-EU applicants without a work permit.
  • any offer of a place on the programme is contingent on satisfactory health and criminal records checks.

Programme Structure

The DClinPsy programme is competency based and conforms to the Standards for Education and Training of the Health & Care Professions Council and 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.

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 (with some exceptions in the first year), the second (February to June) is based at the University of Nottingham’s School of Medicine.

Practice learning takes place throughout the year and is based at placements in services in Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire. Research is conducted throughout the programme leading to the completion of a doctoral thesis at the end of the second year including a service related research project.
