Summary

This MSc programme is provided in collaboration with the Salomons Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, which is part of Canterbury Christ Church University. The MSc is designed for psychology graduates who are considering pursuing training in clinical psychology, and includes the provision of specialised teaching from qualified clinical psychologists.

At the end of the course, you will have gained an in-depth knowledge of theory, practice and research in clinical psychology, a discipline that involves the application of the scientific theory and principles of psychology to help in the understanding and alleviation of psychological distress and dysfunction, and in promoting well-being.

UK and EU Christ Church alumni are eligible for a 20% discount on self funded Postgraduate Taught Masters and Masters by Research.

The aim is to help prepare you for potentially undertaking doctoral training in clinical psychology, or training in other mental health disciplines, and as such the programme is intended to provide a stepping stone towards a rewarding potential career in clinical psychology or mental health.

Clinical psychology has an evidence-based emphasis, with a focus on a scientist-practitioner model and a strong emphasis on research, and the training in research methods on this programme will offer you the opportunity to engage in sophisticated, postgraduate level research in clinically-related areas of psychology.

It should be noted that this MSc does not form part of a doctoral qualification in clinical psychology or form part of a professional qualification as a clinical psychologist, and does not guarantee students entry onto a clinical psychology doctorate programme. Furthermore, completion of this MSc is not a requirement for entry onto a clinical psychology doctorate programme. However, clinical psychology is a highly sought after career, and it is intended that this programme will provide valuable learning in preparation for seeking clinical psychology training.
