Clinical Psychology

In common with most clinical psychology programmes, the cognitive behavioural approach to psychotherapy is dominant but there is also a substantial teaching input based upon other psychotherapeutic approaches. The programme covers a wide geographical area, including Ayrshire and Arran, Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Highland and Lanarkshire, and is varied in terms of rural, urban and inner city populations. Psychologists in departments throughout this area are closely involved in the programme, including placement provision, teaching, research supervision and coordination of teaching modules.

Entry requirements

Students must have the British Psychological Society Graduate Basis for Chartering (GBC) and provide proof of this. This usually takes the form of a single or joint 2.1 or above Honours degree in Psychology; however, candidates who have gained GBC by other means will be considered. Additional practical clinical or research experience of working with children or adults with mental health problems or learning disabilities is an advantage. We do not consider applications from final-year undergraduates.

Course modules

The programme follows a modularised structure, which integrates academic teaching, clinical practice education and research training. This process underpins the commitment of the programme team to maximising the synergy between the clinical, academic and research components of training and reflects explicitly our commitment to an integrative educational process.
The programme consists of 16 compulsory courses:
Year 1: Foundations of clinical psychology; foundations of clinical practice 1; foundation of clinical practice 2; foundation knowledge, understanding and skills; service-based evaluation project 1.
Year 2: Child/family/adolescent theory and practice; learning disability theory and practice; research methods; research practice; advanced professional practice 1; service-based evaluation project 2.
Year 3: Advanced practice 1; advanced practice 2; psychology and the law; research practice 2: major research project; advanced professional practice 2.
