Clearing House for Postgraduate Courses in Clinical Psychology   

Offers of Places

All offers of a place on a course are dependent on criminal record and other checks required for working with children and vulnerable adults. There may also be other requirements such as successful completion of academic qualifications, further satisfactory references etc. Please see the information provided by the course centre when they made you the offer for details of the conditions that apply.

Responding to Offers

If you are offered a place on or before 30 May 2014:


If you are offered a place after 30 May 2014 you have seven days to respond.

Please respond to offers by entering Accept or Decline in the online system. These options become available once the course centre has confirmed the outcome of their interviews with us. Some course centres also require you to contact them direct eg to email confirmation to them or to return signed paperwork. Please check their requirements in the information they sent to you when they made you the offer.

Please think carefully before accepting an offer.

  • You cannot accept more than one offer, regardless of the conditions attached to the offer.
  • All acceptances are final: once you accept an offer you are committed to that course and cannot go elsewhere.
  • If you try to accept more than one offer, all offers will be withdrawn.
  • If you do not respond by the given deadline, all offers will be withdrawn.

If you accept an offer from one course centre any ongoing applications with other course centres will be cancelled ie offers will be withdrawn, you will be removed from reserve lists, or your interviews will be cancelled as appropriate. We will email you to confirm your acceptance of a place and the cancellation of your other applications. Your email software may treat our emails as junk or spam, so please check your Junk Email folder and/or Spam Email folder regularly.

Reserve Lists for Offers

Reserve lists allow course centres to fill places when an offer is declined.

You are not required to accept any offer before 6 June 2014. However, if you know before then that you want to decline an offer, please do so as soon as possible. The course centre concerned can then make an offer to someone on their reserve list for whom that course may be their first choice.

If you are on the reserve list of your first choice course but have offers from other courses, please do not accept an offer until the deadline (although please decline any offers you definitely do not want to take up as above). Course centres do use their reserve lists during the week between 30 May and 6 June.

If you wish to withdraw from a reserve list you can also do this in the online system. This will automatically email the course centre concerned to inform them.
