University of East Anglia UK and Sunway University Malaysia Joint Course (DClinPsy)




Clinical Psychology is an increasingly international profession and at UEA we have developed many diverse ways of ensuring that our programme has a vibrant international outlook.

Since 2014 we have been accepting a small number of self-funded overseas applicants onto the programme. We have developed an exclusive flexible model of training meaning that international candidates may be able to flexibly model their final year specialist clinical placements and/or their doctoral research in their home country. To encourage and enable this we have formed links and partnerships with overseas institutions and organisation enabling us to quality assure the international aspects of the programme. Finally, we have recently started to develop third year international experiential placements for our UK/EU trainees – so that they can also benefit from these aspects of the programme as they come towards the end of their training. We promote the programme through talks and open days both in the UK and internationally, particularly in the South East Asia region, and would welcome any enquiries so please contact us should you want any further information. Do consider coming to UEA to make a difference and we will help you fulfil your potential.

This three-year course is actually based in the UK. Trainees spend the first two years in the UK whilst the last year can be spent in Malaysia.

  1. Hi Dr. Dan, I’m a recent graduate interested to pursue a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. According to my understanding, most places require us to have a Masters qualification or additional experience before they allow us to work in a clinical setting. May I know if you are aware of any local clinical settings that take in Bachelor graduates for work to obtain that experience?

    • Hi Lily, you don’t necessarily need a Masters qualification before applying for a doctorate in clinical psychology. You can apply with a UK upper second class honours degree or above. You do need some working experience because the courses like to know that you are fully aware of the work that you might be doing during training. I think the Rekindle Academy in Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur offers some internships:
