It is too late to apply for courses starting in autumn 2017: the closing date was 30 November 2016. The details currently on our website are for the autumn 2017 intake, and will be updated in September 2017 for the autumn 2018 intake.

You need the following documents for your application. Please allow yourself plenty of time to get them organised.


You need to provide an academic transcript and a document confirming your status for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC). Please follow the appropriate link for further details:

English language ability

Please see the International Students section for details.

Passport and other visa/residence documents

If you have UK/EU/EEA/Swiss nationality you do not need to provide your passport or other documents about your status when you apply, but you may need to take these to any interviews you are invited to.

If you do not have UK/EU/EEA/Swiss nationality you need to provide a copy of the details page of your passport with your application. Also, if you have the right to work in the UK you will need to provide a document that confirms your status, if you are applying for an NHS place. (People currently training as clinical psychologists are employed by the NHS. Please see the Funding page for more information.) Please provide a copy of the details page of your passport and a copy of any paperwork from the UK authorities that gives details about your right to work eg a copy of your Residence Permit.

How to send us your documents

When you have completed the rest of your application, the Documents screen in your application will show you which documents you need to provide. We do not accept any additional documents beyond those requested. However, some course centres may have further requirements for documents. Please see the Courses section for details of the requirements of individual course centres.

If you have applied in previous years and provided the appropriate documents, you should be able to copy these into your current application. If you have not applied before (or did not previously provided the appropriate items) you can scan your documents and attach them to your application as pdf or jpeg files. Please provide a good quality scan. We often have to contact applicants to get better quality copies eg because of photos taken in poor light or at odd angles etc.

If you are unable to provide a good quality scan of a document you can post a photocopy of it to us instead and we will scan it for you (see the Contact Us page for our address). Please include a note of your name, address, date of birth, and if possible your application ID number, to help us match the document to your application. Please do not post original documents to us.

If you do not have one of the documents yet, you should tick the "posting" box on the Documents screen in your application and you must submit your application by the closing date: 1.00pm (UK time) on 30 November 2016. When you receive the document(s) please send us a copy as soon as possible (see the Contact Us page for details of where to send it). We can then add this to your application before it is released to the course centres by the end of January (see the After You Apply section for more details).
