Study type Taught


This is a 3-year full-time course which, upon successful completion, leads to a professional qualification in Clinical Psychology (D.Clin.Psych.). Study time is divided between academic and research training at both Coventry and Warwick universities, and mandatory clinical placements in the NHS which are sourced for you by the university. During the second and third years of the course, you will complete a research thesis of publishable quality. The programme focuses mainly on evidence-based practice and critical evaluation of both psychological literature and clinical practice. The course places great emphasis on personal and professional development, enabling trainees to become reflective practitioners.

In each year of the course, you will spend between 41 and 43 weeks on placement. During each of those weeks, you will have either 3 or 4 placement days, equating to 125-130 placement days per year.

While we would like to give you all the information about your placements, the placement arrangements may vary per student. Please contact the course director for more information about going on a placement for this course.
