University of Birmingham
This programme comprises a combination of academic teaching, research and research training, and professional training during clinical placements; students complete 5 placements in a range of health settings in the West Midlands; the course encourages an attitude of critical open-mindedness to a range of theories and models with an emphasis on the importance of evidence-based practice and reflection on clinical work. The programme is organised on a collaborative basis with local NHS psychologists, and many local clinicians are involved in teaching.
1st class degree; a high 2.1 (ie a GPA of 65 or above); or if a lower 2.1, a clinically relevant Masters degree in addition. The candidate must also have 1 year full-time clinically relevant experience such that he/she can demonstrate to have been either applying psychological principles in a clinical setting or engaged in research that is relevant to a clinical population (e.g. as a research assistant or as part of a 3 year PhD). The experience could be spread across 2 years but must equate to 1 year full-time. Mature candidates with relevant professional backgrounds and qualifications will be considered on an individual basis. Candidates must also have Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) of the British Psychological Society.
The programme is examined by continuous assessment, with students completing a series of assignments and projects over the 3 years. Research, which is conducted in the 2nd and 3rd years of the programme, is written up for examination in the form of 2 papers for publication.
Most candidates offered a place on the programme are funded by salaries provided by the NHS, however we will consider a small number of overseas self funding applicants for 2014 entry.
