Qualifications

In order to use the protected title clinical psychologist, you must be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), which involves completing three years of postgraduate training leading to a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, or equivalent, approved by the HCPC.

In order to get a place on a Doctorate course, you will need Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), which is achieved by completing a psychology degree or conversion course accredited by The British Psychological Society (BPS). For a full list of GBC qualifying courses see the BPS Accredited Psychology Courses.

Most Doctorate course providers are looking for a first class honours degree or a good 2:1, although some may accept a 2:2 if you have a relevant Masters degree or above.

​The quaint town in Somerset in the south of England does not suffer from being a more rural location, and still has a more than ample supply of entertainment, places to visit and daytime activities. These range from visits to Military Museums such as the Fleet Air Arm Museum, to more eclectic excursions, such as a visit to Cary Alpacas. Supplementing the days out, are the consistent promise of scenic days out, to places such as Ninesprings Country Park or Tintihull Garden. For the more prolific shoppers out there, Yeovil still has plenty to keep your everyday needs in check, with the Quedam Shopping Centre found in the heart of Yeovil town.

The town is easily accessed by the A30 and the A37, and has both the Yeovil Pen Mill and the Yeovil Junction Train Stations, offering various additional travel options for people that are perhaps travelling or commuting further, or simply for an additional means of travel around the South West of England.
