Old Aberdeen Campus
Increasing numbers of Psychology undergraduates are looking to pursue a career in Clinical Psychology but accessing job and training opportunities in this area is very competitive and often difficult to access. The masters programme in Clinical Psychology will increase your knowledge, skills, experience and confidence when applying for highly competitive Assistant Psychologist posts, Clinical Associate Training or the Doctoral Qualification in Clinical Psychology.
You will learn from practising clinical psychologists and academic psychologists who will provide advanced training on theoretical and applied aspects of clinical psychology. Key topics include developing psychological assessment and formulation skills, introducing core clinical skills, understanding clinical psychology across the lifespan, ethical and professional issues and clinical research methods. Carrying out a substantial clinical project will enable students to apply these skills in real-life situations. The clinical project is co-supervised by a practitioner psychologist and is often rooted in local clinical services, for example, carrying out a service evaluation of a treatment group.
You will usually have a 2:1 or first MA or BSc BPS accredited Psychology Degree (or overseas equivalent). In exceptional circumstances, applicants with a 2:2 BPS Psychology Degree may be considered.
