Clinical Psychology

Overview

Clinical psychology is the application of psychological theories, models and research to a range of psychological, psychiatric, mental health and developmental problems.

Clinical psychologists provide a variety of services including assessment, therapy, and consultancy services. They work primarily, but not exclusively in child and/or adult and learning disability services where emotional, behavioural, psychiatric or developmental difficulties are addressed.

In order to become a clinical psychologist, an accredited honours undergraduate degree where psychology is the major subject is required. Completion of a recognised postgraduate training programme in clinical psychology is then necessary. You can enhance your chances of achieving a place on such a programme by achieving a high grade at undergraduate level (minimum 2.1 grade) and obtaining further research or academic experience relevant to the field of clinical psychology. This can be by way of voluntary or paid work.
