The Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN) is designed to provide a standard of competence for practice as a Clinical Neuropsychologist that will help you to acquire the underpinning knowledge and demonstrate the essential skills required to work in this field.
Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology
|Duration||2 years minimum (or part-time equivalent)|
|Enrolment (entry) requirements||Chartered Membership of the Society
HCPC registration as a Clinical or Educational Psychologist
The QiCN has been structured so as to enable you to train flexibly, within a structured and supportive framework.
Completion of the QiCN leads to Full membership of the Division of Neuropsychology (DoN) and entry to the Society’s Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists.
The Qualification requires you to undertake a minimum of two years of structured supervised practice (or the part-time equivalent).
Your supervised practice will build upon the academic components of the QiCN by requiring the development and demonstration of skills in applied settings.
You will undertake your supervised practice with the support of your Co-ordinating Supervisor, an additional supervisor (if required), the Clinical Neuropsychology Qualifications Board and a designated Qualifications Administrator.
The team are committed to ensuring that the QiCN allows you the flexibility to develop the required competencies and submit work for assessment at your own pace.
For details on how to find a Co-ordinating Supervisor consult the Candidate Handbook.
The first step is to consult the Candidate Handbook and make sure that you fulfil the entry requirements of the qualification.
The next step is to find and secure a Co-ordinating Supervisor using the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.
Supervision with your Co-ordinating Supervisor is an important part of your training on the qualification and, therefore, it is advisable to contact more than one Co-ordinating Supervisor before agreeing terms.
Your Co-ordinating Supervisor will be able to explore with you how you might design your plan of training, taking into account any previous qualifications and your current circumstances.
Once you have secured supervisory support, the next step is to complete and submit your enrolment application.
The relevant forms can all be found on the Forms and Handbooks tab.
Our Candidate Handbook will help to guide you through the process of enrolment and provide tips on how to complete the forms.
The QiCN is a flexible qualification and does not formally close for applications, therefore, you are welcome to submit your application, either by post or electronically, at any time.

The assessment of the QiCN is usually conducted at the end of your two years of training (supervision plan) by means of a clinical portfolio and an oral examination, which will assess the competencies you have gained in pursuit of the QiCN.
The current assessment timetable and registration forms can be found in the Candidate Information tab.
