DAppEdPsy Psychology (Applied Educational Psychology Doctorate)

Prepare yourself for a professional career in educational psychology. Our doctorate focuses on the link between theory and practice.

The programme is delivered by the School of Psychology which provides you with the opportunity to meet leading practitioners and researchers. We have over 50 years of expertise in this area. We also work closely with professional educational psychologists employed by the regional local authorities and other settings.

The course uses inclusive principles and practices. It will support you to become an effective consultant, systems analyst and problem-solver. You'll graduate with a scientist-practitioner mindset.

You'll learn through academic taught modules, professional fieldwork placements and a research project.

Alongside the modules listed in each year, you will do placements.

In year one, you'll be on supervised placements throughout the year in educational psychology services, with some supplementary placement weeks.

In years two and three, you will undertake placements of 130 days per year. These are usually supported by a local authority bursary in educational psychology services.

Placements are usually in the East Midlands but can be elsewhere if there is availability.

Taught modules are assessed by written assignments, focused case studies or presentations. Placements are supported and evaluated through three-way meetings involving you, your university tutor and your placement supervisor. Assessment is through a portfolio, including a Professional Development Log of competencies.

You will have a University tutor as well as a placement supervisor. Both supervisors will be a HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist.

You will receive regular individual support. This will help you integrate the theoretical, professional and research components of the course.
