How to become an Educational Psychologist

To work as an EP, you’ll need to have a Doctorate in Educational Psychology. This is a 3-year, full-time course. EPs who were trained before this qualification was introduced may have an MSc in Educational Psychology instead.

More information about funding and starting your career in educational psychology is available on the following websites:

The Association of Education Psychologists

British Psychological Society

Aspiring EP events

Our Aspiring EP events run twice a year and provide information and support for those interested in the profession and considering applying for the doctorate.

These free events are held online, with the autumn dates taking place before the application deadline and the spring events being held pre-interview. Both Aspiring EP sessions are there to support you and provide insight into the role throughout both stages of the application process.

The sessions will answer questions such as

  • What’s it like to be an EP?
  • How can I become an EP?
  • How do I apply for EP training?
  • What can I expect on the training course?
