Too many to tell you, but look on the website for a list of them.

Hi,

I am a third year Psychology student at Bath. Although I am not particularly knowledgeable about the route into Clinical Psychology, there is a great section on the British Psychological Society website, which has loads of information about careers in Clincial Psychology.

I'd recommend starting with reading the clearing house for clinical psychology applications (this is where you would apply via for entry to a UK clinical psychology programme) at http://www.leeds.ac.uk/chpccp/index.html

You can apply to 4 programmes each year so you would need to think about which ones you'd prefer. There are differences in the approaches of the different programmes both in terms of how they select people for their programmes (it is VERY competitive) and how they train people. Check out individual websites and the alternative handbook from the BPS may help at https://www.bps.org.uk/system/files/...dbook_2016.pdf

Some people will tell you that you need lots of clinical experience or a certain number of years of x, y or z. While some programmes do approach selection in this traditional way, this is not the case for all of them. While you may want to go and get some experience before choosing to apply, this is not necessarily a requirement.
