Doctorate in Educational Psychology (DEdPsy)
The aim of the programme is to offer knowledge and expertise for a career as an educational psychologist (EP), via doctorate-level study. Completion of the programme confers eligibility to apply for registration as an educational psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and to the British Psychological Society (BPS) for Chartered EP status.
Applicants should note the following.
- Cardiff University has in place a Policy for Determining Applicants' Fitness to Practise and Eligibility to Pursue Regulated Programmes of Study. This policy will be followed where information is disclosed or received about applicants, which suggests that a fitness to practise assessment is required.
- Eligibility to enrol on the programme, if offered a place, is dependent upon satisfactory completion of an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) Check, i.e., one that does not reveal any information that suggests a trainee would be unsuitable for work with children, young people and vulnerable adults.
- The HCPC carries out its own health and character checks to determine whether individuals are fit to practise and can be included on the Register. So passing all elements of this programme does not guarantee automatic inclusion on the HCPC’s Register.
- The Cardiff DEdPsy Programme does not offer any interim, exit or aegrotat awards for trainees who do not successfully complete all programme requirements. This includes successful completion of the thesis.
