About

This Clinical Psychology programme from University of South Wales offers 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 Clinical Psychology programme from University of South Wales has a substantial research element.

You will receive extensive training in research methods via a postgraduate statistics module and will complete a postgraduate dissertation in a related topic.

We have strong links with local NHS trusts and suitable students can benefit from dissertation and/or voluntary placement opportunities, when these are available

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

Please note that this programme does not confer Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society. Applicants seeking this recognition should apply to our MSc Psychology (Conversion) course.

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.

Graduates could also progress to a postgraduate research. We welcome applications from self-funded students for postgraduate research degrees (including Masters by Research and PhD) in clinical / health psychology.
