Entry to the DClinPsych is restricted to New Zealand and Australian Citizens or Permanent Residents.
Entry into the clinical programme is limited to 11 students per year. Entry is based on application, selection and interview.
To gain entry into the three-year doctorate, you must first apply for and complete the clinical honours year, which includes passing courses in clinical theory and practice and an honours-level dissertation (PSYCH 708, 718, 723, 788 or their equivalents) with a GPA of 6.0.
Successful applicants who have completed an honours or masters programme, but have not fulfilled all the clinical prerequisite courses listed above, must complete these under a bridging programme.
Successful applicants who have already completed the clinical prerequisite courses during prior study will have a stand-down year while others in their cohort complete the bridging programme.
