The Academic Curriculum

The academic curriculum is designed to deliver doctorate level training that equips trainees to become compassionate, ethical and competent clinical psychologists. It is underpinned by the scientist-practitioner model, and intends to deliver learning experiences that encourage trainees to make theory-practice links, and to be both critical consumers off, and contributors to clinical research.

The curriculum is divided into four main streams; i) therapies, ii) Neuropsychology, Health & Disability, iii) Reflective Organisational Practice and iv)  Research.








These four streams are delivered within a lifespan approach. First year of training focuses on children and young people, with the second year following into working age adult and later life.  The final year curriculum focuses on consolidation and specialisation within the four streams and provides opportunity to explore emerging domains within the field of clinical psychology.
