Information for prospective Health Psychology placement students
Who are placements suitable for?
You are welcome to apply, as long as you wish to gain valuable and varied experience towards your career. In particular, we welcome applications from these students who are seeking placements:
- undergraduate BSc sandwich year students,
- postgraduate MSc students, &
- clinical psychology trainees.
Unfortunately, we do not offer placements to students who are under 18 years of age.
What is my minimum commitment?
We ask for a minimum commitment of 3 months, of at least 3 days per week, in order to be able to offer any meaningful experience. It is common for undergraduate BSc sandwich students to work 4 day weeks, starting in September and ending in June of the following year, (with these placements normally totalling 160 working days).
Unfortunately, we do not offer placements which last fewer than 3 months and 3 days a week.
Which services may offer placements?
When & how should I apply?
The deadline for applications is the 15th of December, each year. Please ensure you contact us before this date, sending us a CV and covering letter/email. Interviews are most likely to be conducted in the second week of January.
