As mentioned earlier, our programme does differ from other programmes so please read this information carefully so you know what to expect if you apply to Lancaster. Every aspect of our selection procedure has been designed to provide more reliable ratings of candidates' competencies and to increase equality of opportunity. We have a four stage process:
All applicants who have GBC status and the minimum English language requirement will be invited to stage 2. Please see more detail in the Admissions Handbook if you are not resident in the European Union.
Please refer to the Admissions Handbook here.
The programme will not be conducting an online written assessment this year.The programme will offer all applicants who progress to stage 2 the opportunity to come to Lancaster University to sit the test under exam conditions. This written task will take place on 26th February, 2013.
The process will be in two parts; a 45 minute meeting which comprises an interview and a clinical simulation task and a 45 minute meeting which comprises a presentation and a problem solving task. There will be a prepared component (the presentation) and unprepared components. The panels for both meetings will be made up of programme staff, local clinical psychologists, service users and current Lancaster trainees.
The top 24 candidates will be offered places informally and others placed on a reserve list.
Details of the offer process are included in the Selection section of the Online Handbook.
