About

The Clinical Psychology programme taught at University of South Wales will give you a comprehensive grounding in the understanding of mental health problems.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

As well as modules that develop your knowledge of the aetiology and treatment of a range of psychological disorders and behavioural problems, the course has a substantial research element.

In this Clinical Psychology programme from University of South Wales you will receive extensive training in research methods via a postgraduate statistics module and will complete a postgraduate dissertation in a related topic.

The programme has strong links with local NHS trusts and suitable students can benefit from dissertation and/or voluntary placement opportunities.

USW also has a Behaviour Analysis clinic, where students can participate in in-house supervised voluntary experience.

Careers

This is a taught Clinical Psychology Masters programme and completion will not qualify you to practice as a Clinical Psychologist in the UK, nor guarantee acceptance onto a DClinPsy course. The skills that you develop will, however, enhance applications for professional training programmes, Assistant Psychologist posts, and Research Assistant posts in clinical settings and set you apart from applicants who have only an undergraduate Psychology degree.
