The normative period of study is two years and three months (slightly over 4 semesters) and the maximum period of candidature is four years.

Course Structure

During the first year, students will complete six core modules and one clinical placement in UM. In the second year, students will complete the remaining three modules, thesis and two clinical placements (see below) in Singapore.

Practical Training
Students will be required to undertake three placements. The first placement will take place at the Psychology Clinic at the University of Melbourne in Australia lasting for about 4 months. The remaining two placements, each lasting for 6 months, will be undertaken externally with various hospitals, community agencies and private practices in Singapore.

During placements, all students will be under the close supervision of qualified and experienced Clinical Psychologists. Students are evaluated mid-placement, and at the end of their placement by the supervising clinician.
