Course summary

Course Overview

  • In a time when mental health issues are increasing – and increasingly recognised – Clinical Psychology has never been more crucial. Playing your part starts right here.
  • A career in Clinical Psychology is seen by many as the pinnacle of a career in Psychology, with students attracted to the challenges that working with a wide range of mental and physical health problems can offer.
  • Graduates will often work with those facing anxiety, depression, learning difficulties or relationship issues. With an increased public awareness of the importance of mental health, the opportunities for working within Clinical Psychology and the demand for graduates with an understanding of these issues is on the increase.
  • This course is delivered not only by outstanding academic staff, but draws upon our extensive links in hospitals, health centres and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) to provide frontline staff to share their knowledge and experiences with you.
