  • In your final year you will complete a research project in an area of Clinical Psychology and study two modules dedicated to providing an understanding not only of assessment and treatment but also clinical practice, research and service delivery.

What you’ll do

  • In addition to a core of modules, you’ll also have the chance to focus on other areas, like forensic criminal psychology, neuropsychology and more.

Module overview

Course delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
