I applied for Bangor University, Central Lancanshire, University of East London, Angila Ruskin and worcester. Thanks for the advice... I have looked at the student reviews of some of the courses but they don't quite tell me what I want to know... also they might be biased.
Congratulations on all your acceptances!
If you are unable to make our next Open Day at ARU, (Sat 27 April)
, we can look at arranging a chat with the course leader for our BSc Psychology with Clinical Psychology
course, which is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
When comparing courses, to be BPS accredited, the course has to cover set information, meaning that most accredited Psychology and Clinical Psychology courses will be very similar in content. What really makes our course stand out, are the additional extras gained, the support throughout your studies, and the value that our teaching academics currently practising in clinical or other psychology settings, bring. Being research-active, actively maintains their knowledge and skills.
There are many careers where a degree in Psychology can help, through the analytical skills you gain, but if it is the Clinical Psychologist route you are most interested in, then looking at institutions with opportunities to study at a postgraduate level is most valuable. At ARU we offer the MSc Foundations in Clinical Psychology and MSc Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience PG courses, which support entry to Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (or equivalent).
Hopefully this is a helpful introduction, and please contact me if you’d like to arrange to speak to a course leader.
