Applicants with Disabilities

All courses welcome applications from people with disabilities. If you are invited for a short-listing test or an interview day we suggest contacting the relevant course centre staff team (see the Courses section for their contact details) or the relevant University Disability Service to discuss any support needs you may have, so that adjustments can be made in good time. (Please see the After You Apply section if you need more information about short-listing tests or interviews.)

If you have any issues using our website please contact us to discuss how you can make an application eg for our support in using the website, for an application in another format, etc (see the Contact Us page for our details).

Disability Confident scheme

The Disability Confident scheme (previously known as "two ticks" or "double-tick") is a voluntary scheme that organisations can choose to sign up to. It aims to help organisations make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. If you need more information about the Disability Confident scheme please see the gov.uk website. (People currently training as clinical psychologists are employed by the NHS. These arrangements may be amended for candidates entering training in 2018, but this is unclear at this stage. Please see the Funding page for more information.)

If you have a disability as defined by the Equality Act and you want to be considered under the scheme please indicate this in the Basics section of your application. Please note that not all course centres are involved in the scheme so this will only take effect if the courses you have applied to are participating. Please see the Courses section to check which course centres are involved. If you need more information about the Equality Act and the definition of disability, please see the Equality and Human Rights Commission website.

If you wish to give further details about your disability you can do so in the final question in the Personal Statements section of your application, but this is not a requirement. It is your decision whether or not to disclose a disability at any stage in the application process.

Any information you provide about a disability in the equal opportunities section of your application may not automatically be passed on to the course centres, depending on what consent you have given and on how each course centre plans to use (or not use) the data. Therefore, if you wish to be considered under the Disability Confident scheme please indicate this in the Basics section of your application (as described above). Please see the Equal Opportunities page if you need more information on how that section of the application may be used.
