Program description

Clinical Psychology PsychD

The School of Psychology at the University of Surrey is one of the most active and highly regarded psychology departments in the UK. We specialise in applied and policy-oriented teaching and research with a strong theoretical context. We’re at the cutting edge of psychology research, and have been the focus for many cross-national studies. We’ve received funding from many research councils, as well as local and national government.

We offer excellent graduate employment prospects, and are one of the biggest psychology postgraduate training schools in the country.

Our PsychD Clinical Psychology offers a combination of opportunities that’s hard to match elsewhere. You’ll get training that combines theory and methods, as well as experience of contemporary clinical psychology practice.

This course puts special emphasis on psychological practice, and will prepare you for a career as a professional psychologist. Completing our PsychD Clinical Psychology will make you eligible to register with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and for chartered status with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

You’ll be supervised by clinicians who are experts in the field, and benefit from the expertise of research active staff.

Program content

Our PsychD in Clinical Psychology is a three-year practitioner doctorate course which provides professional clinical psychology training based on a coherent synthesis of psychological theory, research and clinical practice.

You will begin your training with six weeks of compulsory teaching, which will introduce you to the NHS, and will provide you with a solid foundation of working psychotherapeutically using cognitive behavioural therapy to prepare you for your first placement. You will then begin your clinical practice, spending two and a half days a week on clinical placement, two days back at the University for teaching or research, and half a day on private study. This pattern will continue for your three years of full-time training (although there is no formal teaching during August). Most of your teaching will support each of your placements, so you will be properly equipped to work with your clients.
