University of Sheffield (DClinPsy)





Based on information on the Clinical Psychology Clearing House in October 2022 the University of Sheffield does not appear to be offering their course to international students in 2023. However, we have left the information below for your reference.

The fundamental structure of the Programme is a hybrid of day-release teaching, mini-teaching blocks (usually one or two weeks duration) and clinical placements. During the first year, trainees attend a four-week introductory block consisting of academic teaching and clinical skills training. This is followed by two five-month placements focusing on core skills and individual work, separated by a two-week mini block. In the first year, trainees attend the University for between one and three days per week during term time. In subsequent years, trainees attend the University for one day each week, with the remaining four days being for clinical work (three) and private study (one). The second year consists of two five-month placements, whilst the final year consists of two five-month placements with some choice of specialisms (in conjunction with learning needs and competency development) and which may be combined as one or two year-long placements. Each placement, except the final one, is preceded by a mini block, (of one to four weeks), designed to prepare trainees for the following placement.
