Clinical Psychology


Clinical Psychology integrates academic and practical work to produce generalists who adapt to societal needs and changes in service delivery, think critically, and communicate clearly.

Our graduates evaluate the effectiveness of professional services, embrace standards of professional ethics, recognise the importance of personal values, and appreciate and respect individual and cultural differences.
