About Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychiatry (Online Delivery), PG Dip - at University of South Wales

Mental health is becoming increasingly more challenging and multidisciplinary in practice so it's essential to be able to deal with complex situations you may face as a healthcare professional with confidence.

Delivered with our partner Diploma MSc, the online Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychiatry will enable those working in primary care or specialist units to take a specialist interest in clinical psychiatry and ultimately improve their care for patients displaying psychiatric symptoms.

It will ensure you're up to date with new classifications, treatments and assessments that integrate psychological and social sciences, and develop your understanding of how the Mental Health Act and the Capacity Acts influence delivery of services. You will also learn plus how the field links to acute medicine, surgery, perinatal services, children's services and primary care.

Entry requirements

To secure your place on the course, applicants will typically hold a first degree or equivalent (including international qualifications) in a relevant professional healthcare field, such as a medical or nursing degree. Registered healthcare professionals without these recognised qualifications will be considered on an individual basis and a wide range of prior experience may be taken into account.

In some cases, applicants may be asked to submit a piece of work for assessment in order to confirm that they are able to work comfortably at postgraduate level, and demonstrate the requisite clinical and professional knowledge.

English Language Requirements

Proficiency in the English Language is also essential to completing our courses. If English is NOT your first language, we ask for proof of competency during the application process. We are able to accept an IELTS overall score of 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 for each band) or an equivalent qualification.
