About

This Clinical Psychology programme at The University of Exeter prepares trainees for work as clinical psychologists in the National Health Service (NHS). The programme is regulated by the Health Professions Council (HPC) and is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). 

Overview

Key Features

On successful completion of the course trainees will be able to apply for registration as a Practitioner Psychologist with the HPC in order to practice. In addition successful completion of the three-year programme confers eligibility for chartered clinical psychologist status with the BPS. Those who join the programme are registered as University postgraduate research students and trainee psychologists, working with an NHS contract in the South West of England.

The Clinical Psychology programme at The University of Exeter is based on a reflective scientist practitioner model. As such, it draws on the research/evidence-base to inform clinical activities. This approach is reflected in each of the three modules. The critical role of research evidence as a unifying perspective for research experiences and clinical activities is viewed as a fundamental aspect of the programme. This integration is achieved through course work, research and clinical activities and the latter two experiences are achieved by close working relationships with selected faculty members. This "learning by doing" approach benefits students by continuously involving them in active research projects as well as supervised clinical practice.

Our aim is to produce graduates who will make a meaningful contribution to service users, the services themselves and the profession of clinical psychology. The training is informed and enriched by input from our Lived Experience Network, a group of people who have experience of services, and the Inequalities/Diversity Advisory Group.
