A UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1) degree
Your degree needs to be in Psychology, and you will need to hold the Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). A MSc Psychology conversion degree will also be accepted, if it is of Merit grade (average mark of 60% or higher) and if it confers GBC with the BPS.
You should have appropriate personal qualities suited to employment in the NHS. Some experience of working in a caring or clinical setting is desirable but not essential. Recruitment is jointly undertaken by representative senior academic and NHS staff.
This course has been designed as an innovation in the training structure for Applied Psychologists and provides MSc graduates to NHS workforce roles. NES funds these training roles. NES will not fund places in the Glasgow or Edinburgh Clinical Doctorate Training Programmes for candidates who apply to the Clearing House while in receipt of NES funding for Psychological Therapy in Primary Care MSc. This means that if you accept a place on Psychological Therapy in Primary Care MSc for 2025, you would not be eligible to apply to the Clinical Psychology Doctorate at Glasgow or Edinburgh in the September to November/December 2025 application window for 2026 intake.
