Clinical Psychology

Information for applicants with offers

Welcome to the MSc Psychological Therapies. You are joining a university with a world-class reputation for research and teaching, in a vibrant, cosmopolitan and beautiful city.

Deadlines for accepting offers

When we make you a conditional or unconditional offer, a deadline for accepting the offer is automatically generated. You may accept an offer to this programme and to other programmes elsewhere without penalty, and make a decision later about where to attend.

Applicants with offers conditional on language tests

There are often long waits for language tests. You can accept a conditional offer on language as long as you have a test booked before August preceding the start of the academic session. When your test is complete and you have your results, upload your certificate to EUCLID, where it can be reviewed by admissions.

Getting started

Once you've accepted your offer with us, you can start preparing for your studies. You do not need to read lots of books in advance of starting your studies. However, if you would like to do some reading we recommend two texts that you may find useful as an introduction to CBT and IPT:


Fuggle, P., Dunsmuir, S., & Curry, V. (2012). CBT with children, young people and families. Sage.

Mufson, L., Dorta, K. P., Moreau, D., & Weissman, M. M. (2011). Interpersonal psychotherapy for depressed adolescents. Guilford Press.


The timetable for campus-based classes is finalised in April of each year for the following academic year. Teaching is usually delivered in full-day or full-week blocks.


The programme timetable follows the University academic timetable. For more information please follow the links below.
