Entry requirements

The minimum English language requirement is IELTS level 7. Applicants from outside the European Union must meet the same eligibility requirements as those specified by the NHS Bursary Scheme. Candidates who have been successful during the selection process but who do not meet these criteria cannot be offered employment as a trainee clinical psychologist by the Lancaster DClinPsy Programme. Candidates should check this, in advance of any application, on the NHS Bursary Scheme website (see appendix).

Graduate basis for chartered membership of the British Psychological Society status is an entry requirement. Please see the Clearing House website for further detailed information.

Applicants must have one of the top 70 scores in the screening task to progress to the selection event. If a candidate declares a registered disability, however, they are required to score above 60%. This will guarantee an interview even if the top 70 scores are higher.
