Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych)


NFQ Level 10, Major Award

The D.Clin.Psych. is a full-time programme running for 36 months from the date of first registration for the programme. Candidates will be required to complete a three-year programme and accumulate 270 credits.


All placements will be supervised in a work setting relevant to the programme of study.

Where an alternate placement setting is required for both AP7003 and AP7004 students must undertake one of their elective placements in final year in an intellectual disability setting.

One opportunity may be provided to repeat one failed clinical placement or, in exceptional cases and at the discretion of the Programme Board, those elements of the placement (competencies), that have been failed. A fail grade on a repeat or subsequent clinical placement will result in the trainees being required to leave the programme.

Students failing or not completing a placement because of serious misconduct will not be permitted to repeat the placement and will become subject to the Fitness to Practise policy.
