dc.descriptionThe third in a series of articles relating to successfully applying for Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (D. Psych. Sc.)1 programmes, this study sampled cohorts over the 10-year period 2000-2009 of the four programmes in the Republic of Ireland and profiled entrants’ experiences of the selection process (N = 130). Participants (108 = females; 22 = males) completed a questionnaire that profiled elements of the selection process, what contributed to their performance during the selection process and their suggestions on how to improve the selection process. The results of the thematic analysis revealed that the four D. Psych. Sc. programmes used a largely similar combination of individual and group tasks during the selection process. Well-developed academic, research, clinical and personal competencies predisposed to doing well during the selection process, as did interview preparation and performance. Suggested ways of improving the selection process included increased standardisation and transparency regarding the process, and changes to interview schedules and make-up of panels.en
