As the Board of Management, we have had many lengthy discussions regarding the Clearing House application fees. We have all agreed that starting from the applicaton process in 2020, our fees will be increasing to both applicants and course centres. We are aware that this is a very difficult time to raise applicants’ fees given the important context of widening and increasing access to the profession of clinical psychology.
The Clearing House is a charitable institution which is facing significant financial challenges and the Board of Management has a responsibility to secure the viability of the institution for the future. It should be noted that the fees to applicants have not kept pace with inflation, as the last significant change in fees charged to applicants took place in 2007.
We as a Board are committed to keeping the costs to all parties as low as possible. We will continue to review the fees for 2021 and onwards to ensure that these are kept as low as we can maintain them, whilst ensuring viability of the charity, but also ensuring we can take new work forward. For further information, please see our Processing Fee page.

Clinical psychology course centres are working to put arrangements in place, both for selection and for training, that prioritise everyone's health. These will need to take account of the policies and procedures of the universities and NHS organisations relevant to that course centre. Clinical psychology course centres will seek to ensure that procedures are fair, but processes may need to vary from those described in the Courses section of this website. Please check the websites of individual clinical psychology course centres regularly for updates.
