Clinical Psychology

Career opportunities

Graduates can expect to gain employment in clinical services or private practice as mental health practitioners.

Depending on course choices, graduates may be eligible for accreditation with the BABCP and/or IPT-UK. If you have not reached level of experience for full accreditation, employers are often willing to support continued practice towards accreditation. Our accrediting bodies are recognised across the UK and have reciprocal arrangements with some EU and international accrediting bodies. 

With accreditation, graduates can work with clients. Responsible clinical practice always includes regular skilled supervision, and we recommend that all graduates ensure they have supervision in place irrespective of the sector they practice in.

We offer intermittent CPD sessions open to practitioners. Our graduates are welcome to attend these events, which contribute to maintaining accreditation and lifelong renewal of skills.
