How to get onto a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology watch

    • Thread Starter

    What did you do between graduating your degree and being accepted onto the doctorate? How long did it take? What are the most relevant jobs/volunteer work to gain experience? Is it worth doing a Masters degree?

    Obviously I have researched this through BPS and my University. I was just wondering what people's experiences are of the process, as I have heard that it can take up to eight years to be accepted onto the doctorate.

    You probably won't get much of a response on here as most people are undergrads/applicants.

    I only know of one Clinical Psych on here and he did a MSc and PhD before the D.Clin.Psych.

    Basically, the gold-dust graduate work you're looking for is the Assistant Psychologist post. Other relevant positions include HCA, IAPT work etc.
