Description

This Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is collaboratively funded through NHS Education for Scotland and the University of Glasgow. You will be employed by a local NHS (Scotland) Health Board for the duration of the programme.WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Top 10 in the UK for Psychology (Complete University Guide 2021).
  • In common with most clinical psychology programmes, the cognitive behavioural approach to psychotherapy is dominant but there is also a substantial teaching input based upon other psychotherapeutic approaches.
  • The programme covers a wide geographical area, including Ayrshire and Arran, Greater Glasgow and Clyde, Highland and Lanarkshire, and is varied in terms of rural, urban and inner city populations.
  • Psychologists in departments throughout this area are closely involved in the programme, including placement provision, teaching, research supervision and coordination of teaching modules.
PROGRAMME STRUCTUREThe programme follows a modularised structure, which integrates academic teaching, clinical practice education and research training. This process underpins the commitment of the programme team to maximising the synergy between the clinical, academic and research components of training and reflects explicitly our commitment to an integrative educational process.The programme consists of 16 compulsory courses.Year 1DCLINPSY: FOUNDATIONS OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGYFOUNDATION CLINICAL PRACTICE I[[[MED6033]]][[[MED6026]]]DCLINPSY: SERVICE BASED EVALUATIONYear 2[[[MED6023]]][[[MED6028]]][[[MED6030]]]DCLINPSY: RESEARCH PRACTICE IDCLINPSY: ADVANCED PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE IDCLINPSY: EVIDENCE BASED PRACTITIONERDCLINPSY: ADVANCED CLINICAL PRACTICE IDCLINPSY: SERVICE BASED EVALUATIONYear 3DCLINPSY: PSYCHOLOGY AND THE LAW[[[MED6007]]][[[MED6022]]]Accreditation of Prior LearningFrom 2017, trainees who have already completed the NES-funded MSc in Applied Psychology for Children and Young People at Edinburgh University or the MSc in Psychological Therapy in Primary Care at the Universities of Dundee and Stirling will be eligible to complete their doctorate in a shortened timeframe in accordance with the University of Glasgow Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) regulations and procedures.

This usually takes the form of a single or joint 2.1 or above Honours degree in Psychology; however, candidates who have gained GBC by other means will be considered. Additional practical clinical or research experience of working with children or adults with mental health problems or learning disabilities is an advantage. We do not consider applications from final-year undergraduates.

About this university

International students

Students travel from around the world to study at the university and its website has country-specific information available. The International Student Support Team is a dedicated advisory service to help students on a range of subjects including immigration, finding employment and dealing with financial matters. For those to whom English isn’t a first language there is also English language courses available through the University Language Centre who also provide language support during the length of study. Student life is organised differently at Glasgow than many universities meaning there isn’t a single student association but rather a number covering different areas. There are two separate student’s unions, dating from the times when one was for male students and the other for female, called the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU). There is also a Students Representative Council that is the legal body representing students’ interests in the university and in wider terms. The two unions organise a number of social and cultural groups and events including providing facilities for debating, dining, socialising and meeting rooms. Sports are handled by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) that operates both sports clubs as well as fitness classes and drop in sessions.
