The Doctorate is only open to applications from students in the third year of the BSc Psychology at the University of Hull and the University of York. As the Doctorate is funded by the NHS, to apply you must be from the UK or have the right to work in the UK under the EU settlement scheme (EUSS) without restriction.
All applicants must have successfully completed specialist clinical psychology modules in their third year of the BSc Psychology course and graduated with a 2:1 or 1st class honours degree. In the Hull undergraduate programme, around 30 – 40 students are selected for the clinical modules running in the third year. Selection for these modules takes place towards the end of semester two in the second year of the undergraduate course.
Applicants are not required to have lengthy pre-training clinical experience. However, we do expect to see evidence of commitment to clinical psychology, such as voluntary work or other experience with vulnerable people.
Candidates whose first language is not English or have not studied for their psychology first degree in English must pass the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) at level 7 with no element below 6.5.
