Information for DClinPsy applicants

Lancaster differs from many other Clinical Psychology programmes both in the way it selects candidates to interview and how it chooses those to offer places to. We have provided some background to our values and approach as it will help you understand the tasks applicants are asked to undertake.

About the programme

The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme is only delivered via face-to-face teaching at Lancaster University, which is also your employment base as a Trainee Clinical Psychologist with Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust. In-person attendance at both teaching and placements is a requirement. The programme is not available in either a hybrid or online form due to the requirements of learning and teaching, and the role of trainee clinical psychologist within the services which provide practice placements. Placements are made across the whole of the north west of England and may be located in Lancashire, Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside or Cumbria. There are more details on placements in our handbook including information on expenses. You may wish to browse the entire handbook for full details on the programme's structure and deliver.
