Work with world-leading researchers in understanding mental health problems and making a difference to people’s lives. Gain both a theoretical and practical understanding through guest lectures, industry-standard facilities and our Lived Experience project.

Our Master's course is geared to take you closer to your career goals. Its relevance is grounded in learning from research-active staff, with guest lectures from practising clinical psychology lecturers.

If you’re looking to pursue a career as a qualified psychologist, or in related mental health areas, our MSc Foundations in Clinical Psychology course gives you the preparation for further clinical psychology training.

As a postgraduate student at ARU in Cambridge, you’ll learn to assess and understand the complex issues many people living with mental health problems experience, examining ways to help manage these and find appropriate treatment.

You’ll graduate with both the theoretical knowledge and practical tools to work within mental health services and clinical psychology, as well as be equipped with the skills to apply scientific and research methods.

Please note that this course does not include clinical work with children, patients or mental health service users. This course does not constitute professional training, though it can support entry to a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (or equivalent). We encourage you to seek out relevant paid or voluntary experience while completing your studies; our course is designed to facilitate this.
