Applicants should also be aware that only information provided in the Association of Educational Psychologists application form will be used for shortlisting. If applications are incomplete or unclear, it will not be possible for us to follow up with candidates.

We are also offering optional Zoom sessions on 12 October 2022 at which you will be able to ask tutors and current trainees further questions about the programme and the admission process. You can attend at either 12.30-1.30 pm or 6-7 pm. The Zoom room will open half an hour earlier to enable questions to be posted in Zoom chat. We will assume that you will have read the information on the website and seen this video prior to coming to a Q&A as their purpose is for further clarification.
