How to apply
Overseas applicants who do not meet the criteria for home or EU fee status should also apply through the clearing house system.
Advice to applicants
All applications must be sent to the Clearing House by the beginning of December the year prior to intended entry; applicants should contact the Clearing House for precise deadline dates for their year of entry.
The programme constantly strives to improve the interview process and additions to this format are possible. The interview panel consists of programme staff, local NHS clinicians and community members.
Applicants should obtain the interview schedule from Clearing House and ensure they are available during the allotted week. Alternative interview dates are not available.
Overseas (non-UK) applicants
We now have places for a limited number of students from international countries with overseas fees status, who are seeking the ClinPsyD qualification. These individuals will be required to meet the same entry standards as other successful applicants. As these places are self-funded we encourage candidates to investigate whether bursaries or other funding is available from their home government or other local agencies before applying. You will also need the means to financially support yourself through the three year training programme as the time commitment required for training will not allow for employment. The fees for international students for 2019 entry are currently set at £30,500 per year.
Aptitude test requirement
From 2020, applicants who meet all entry requirements will be invited to sit a GMA (General Mental Ability) test.
The results from this will be used to deselect a proportion of applicants and the remaining candidates will then be shortlisted using the programme's usual process.
Fitness to practise / health requirements
All students are required to demonstrate appropriate professional conduct. Fitness to practice procedures will be invoked in the case of breaches of professional guidelines and codes of conduct.
