Psychology (Foundations in Clinical and Health Psychology)

This course equips graduates who have had little exposure to clinical and health psychology in their 1st degree, with the knowledge and skills required to obtain employment, or to be accepted on to a vocational training course, in these sectors. This course allows you to understand important areas of clinical and health psychology. Students learn through expert-led clinical, health and forensic psychology, cultural and historical perspectives on mental health issues, and research apprenticeships. Colleagues in the NHS provide an introductory course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) through distance learning.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree, or international equivalent, in psychology or a related subject. Applicants whose 1st language is not English will require an overall IELTS score of 7 (with a minimum score of 7.0 for each sub-section) or equivalent.
