The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology is a three-year programme of academic and clinical training offered. It is the result of close collaboration between the University and clinical psychologists in north-west England. The programme aims to train practitioners who are able to fulfil the responsibilities and duties of clinical psychologists in a range of settings. In addition to a comprehensive in-depth training in cognitive-behavioural approaches, teaching is provided in psychodynamic interpersonal therapy, systemic approaches, clinical neuropsychology work, team working and leadership, research methods and other therapeutic and clinical approaches. A critical evaluation of all models is emphasised throughout the training. There is strong emphasis on research throughout the programme and students work alongside research programmes within the Division of Psychology and Mental Health.It is recognised that the majority of graduates will be employed within the National Health Service. The programme is thus geared to train clinical psychologists who will be able to meet the appropriate client needs and organisational requirements of the NHS and other statutory and voluntary bodies who work in collaboration with the health service.The training covers a wide geographical area, with placements at present available in many NHS Trusts throughout the north-west. The structure of the training spans both taught and research elements, with specialist teaching units co-ordinated around intensive clinical placements.
A degree (minimum Upper Second (2:1)) in single honours Psychology, or joint honours where psychology constitutes at least fifty per cent of the course, is required.

Candidates must establish their eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society before making an application. A minimum of 12 months' paid FTE clinically-relevant experience, such as work in a healthcare setting or clinical research, is also essential. Formal consent to participate as service users in practical and clinical teaching will be required as a condition of entry to the programme.
