Newcastle University (DClinPsy) for international applicants




To our knowledge Newcastle University is not currently offering places for international students (based on information published by the Clinical Psychology clearing house in 2022).

We have left the page here as it sometimes comes up in search engines.

The clinical psychology programme at Newcastle is one of the longest established training programmes in the UK, having celebrated over 50 years in practice. It is part of the School of Psychology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, at Newcastle University.

It is closely integrated with the NHS, particularly with our NHS colleagues in the local psychology services and those in Health Education North East which is part of Health Education England.

The aim of the programme is to develop clinically competent and effective scientist practitioners who are able to contribute to and develop the knowledge base through the understanding, production and utilisation of research findings.

The programme is committed to an evidence based and empirically grounded ethos. You will also be enabled to develop key skills and qualities in collaboration, reflection and leadership.

Teaching and training draws on current research, and trainees are required to demonstrate the links between theory and practice throughout their training. Our trainees need to develop and demonstrate competence in the current evidence-based and widely-practiced aspects of clinical psychology. You will be required to develop capability in the critical appreciation of relevant empirical literature and clinical theory, in order to be able to draw upon and contribute to the research basis for clinical practice and solve relevant problems systematically.
