Study type Taught


The MSc in Applied Clinical Psychology has been specifically designed to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills in core theoretical, methodological, and empirical areas of clinical psychology. This programme is aimed at individuals who wish to strengthen their academic credentials in preparation for a career in clinical psychology and/or other professions in the area of mental health. The course uses an applied approach to learning, including an embedded placement opportunity, to not only develop a foundation of understanding of clinical psychology principles and theory but also to enhance and advance interpersonal skills, transferable across all mental health professions.

The core theoretical and empirical basis of clinical psychology (i.e., theories, models and approaches to treatment) is delivered by a range of HCPC Registered Clinical Psychologists, expert academics in specialist fields, clinicians across a wide range of specialities and experts-by-experience. The course content strongly emphasises the importance of evidence-based working with a focus on advancing research skills and competencies, taught by academics and research experts in their field.
