Successful Journey onto the DClinPsy Programme at University of Bath



Episode Overview


In this episode, we talk to Ben Kwapong about the early stages of the clinical psychology DClin programme. As a first year Clinical Psychology trainee at University of Bath, Ben draws upon his success in the context of underrepresentation of black men within the profession.

“I think where I’ve seen a real barrier was probably at interview stage. Perhaps not having someone who looked like me on the panel – that could add to the nerves, possibly.”
