Hello,

I'm a final year Psychology undergrad student and I've had offers from Cardiff University to study MSc Children's Psychological Disorders and Bristol University to study MSc Applied Neuropsychology... but I really can't decide which to choose.

I'm hoping to apply for DClinPsych in the future so I want to do whichever course is going to put me in the best position for getting a place.

I know Bristol is a more prestigious uni, but Cardiff is really well know for its psychology department and offers the DClinPsych training programme. I've added a link to both course pages below. Any advice would be much appreciated!

I think either would be useful! I'm in a similar position, about to finish my bachelor degree and want to go on to a DClinPsy in the future. I have accepted a place at Manchester Met on the MSc Psychological Wellbeing in Clinical Practice, as it involves aspects of psychotherapy as well as psychology and includes a placement-based research project.

If you have a good, BPS accredited bachelor degree, I think experience working in a clinical setting is more important than further academic study, so probably a course offering practical clinical and research experience would be best.

Hey! I finished my psychology undergraduate course too and I’ve been accepted in Cardiff uni for MSc Children’s psychological disorders too. I’m hoping for a DPsy too but the counseling version.

I think it’s a really good choice and will really help you.

You can message me if you want!
