Clinical Applications of Psychology - MSc (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)

We are currently only considering UK/EU students with a Psychology degree that provides Graduate Basis for Chartership (BPS). This is because doctoral training in clinical psychology, to which this course is targeted, is available in the UK primarily to UK/EU citizens. We are keeping this policy under review as doctoral training recruitment evolves.

The MSc in Clinical Applications of Psychology is designed for Psychology graduates who plan to apply for admission to doctoral training programmes in Clinical Psychology and wish to strengthen their credentials for the competitive entry process.

Core Modules:

  • Experimental Design and Data Collection
  • Advanced Qualitative and Quantitative Analysis
  • Clinical Psychology in Adult and Older Adult Mental Health
  • Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology
  • Case Study Seminar
  • Audit Placement Project

There are no optional modules for this course.

* The modules mentioned above may be subject to change. Please read our terms and conditions for more detailed information.


Teaching consists of lectures and seminars and we hold additional workshops for practical study. You will have an average of 8-10 hours of lectures and 2-4 hours of seminars per week in term 1. In terms 2 and 3, students complete their seminar study and undertake a six month NHS research placement, three days a week.


Assessments include written clinical case evaluation reports, design exercises focusing on clinical research, statistical analyses, qualitative analysis, open book examinations and a service related project.

Graduate Destinations:

The majority of our graduates find employment as paid Assistant Psychologists, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, or in similar clinically related roles. In addition, our students have an excellent record of competing for Clinical Doctorate places.

Work Experience Opportunities:

As part of the MSc in Clinical Applications of Psychology students undertake a six month NHS research placement.
