About this course
The Master of Psychology (Clinical) degree is the standard preparation program providing professional training and practise in clinical psychology. It consists of three major components: specialised coursework in a series of topics relevant to clinical practice, research thesis and three long field placements aimed at developing professional competence under the guidance of highly experienced supervisors.
The program involves two years full-time or four years part-time study. The program has two key objectives. The first is to provide thorough theoretical and clinical skills preparation in core areas to meet formal requirements for entry to the profession (as determined by its accrediting bodies). The second is to prepare graduates to accept responsibility for continuing self-monitoring and development, skills that are essential to ongoing employment in the profession.
