Facilities and features
Student-trainees are offered the resources of the Psychology Division as well as the University, including access to the Library, academic skills support such as CLASS, and mental health and wellbeing support. In addition, the IAPT Team liaises with the IAPT Service to provide clinical practice supervision; the IAPT Team provides teaching, facilitation of learning, observation and supervision in relation to students’ knowledge and skill development within the practice area.
For clinical practice and supervision, the workplace is intended to provide trainees with opportunities to develop the specific knowledge and skills required of low intensity workers in applied settings.
The DMU PWP Link Tutor assigned to the student-trainees supports their clinical work, for example, by visiting them on placement and facilitating the development of their clinical skills. The DMU PWP Link tutor aids the student and the clinical supervisor in their roles, such as, in addition to the above, scheduling regular visits to meet with supervisors and Service Leads. Also students are assigned a Personal Tutor who supports their academic work on the programme, who is a point of contact for pastoral support, and who is involved in placement support.
We have 1,500 study places and 650 computer workstations across four sites on campus. These give access to more than half a million publications, an extensive range of DVDs, e-resources and thousands of electronic journals.
The main Kimberlin Library is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year (other than in exceptional circumstances).
Award-winning staff are on hand to help and there is a café for study breaks. We offer a range of workshops, drop-in and one-to-one sessions, and our Just Ask service provides email and telephone support.
Our comfortable and well-equipped study areas provide a range of environments to suit your needs.
Originally set up in our main Kimberlin Library, the learning zones proved so popular that more were created in the Eric Wood Building and Greenhouse. These flexible spaces are ideal whether you are working as a group, practising a presentation or working quietly on your own.
They feature workstations with power supplies for laptops, plus bookable syndicate rooms with interactive whiteboards and DVD players. Eduroam wi-fi is available across all campus locations.
