Course info

Summary

The DEdPsy is a three-year professional training doctorate programme that is approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS). Successful completion of the programme enables graduates to register as a Practitioner Psychologist with the HCPC and as a Chartered Educational Psychologist with the BPS.

Overview

The DEdPsy facilitates an understanding of the role of Educational Psychologists (EPs) as applied psychologists working with children and young people, their families and allied professionals. It introduces trainee EPs to the most recent developments in educational psychology and professional practice and promotes high level research skills. The location of the DEdPsy at the UCL Institute of Education (IOE) provides trainee EPs with the opportunity to engage in research alongside world leaders in the fields of education and psychology, including staff from the Centre for Research in Autism and Education and the Thomas Coram Research Unit.

About this degree

Trainee EPs work alongside their professional EP tutors and academics to develop professional competency and outstanding research skills and expertise.

The DEdPsy comprises three main elements:

  • taught modules
  • professional practice placements
  • research-based thesis

The teaching of modules is provided by an outstanding team of applied educational psychologists and world-class academics. The pedagogy is informed by innovative practice including video-enhanced reflective practice (VERP) and video interactive guidance (VIG). We use skills labs activities to develop professional practice skills and and problem-based learning activities, in the form of contextualised psychological analysis, to develop evidence-informed practice and holistic conceptualisations of the multiple systems and variables influencing presenting issues and concerns for service users.

Careers

All of the DEdPsy graduates to date, have secured posts as educational psychologists. Those who take up a UK government-funded bursary are required to work in an English local authority children’s service for a minimum of two years after qualification.

Employability

Trainee EPs successfully completing the programme meet the professional competency requirements set out by the HCPC and BPS. As such they are entitled to register with the HCPC for the protected title of Practitioner Psychologist and to apply for chartered status with the BPS. Graduates are able to apply for posts as practising educational psychologists in local authority children’s services.
