A message of recommendation from Leoni Cachia

I completed an online 6 week course; An Introduction to Clinical Psychology, by the University of Liverpool. The course provides 5 credits if you choose to complete the assessment. The facilitator was Keith Morgan, and the course is held once a year.

The course was comprised of 6 main components, one covered each week, specifically related to clinical applied psychology and a therapeutic focus utilising CBT and formulation.

The experience was valuable for me as I am actively pursing a career in clinical psychology and it aids my continued professional development. I have been able to network online and virtually meet a diverse range of people from all over the world with an interest in mental health. It has also provided me the chance to build connections with other academics and professionals.

I would recommend the course to anyone that wishes to learn more about clinical psychology. Some previous knowledge is best but not a requirement. It is a flexible course and it is taught at FHEQ level 4.

I was lucky to have the course partially funded by the staff development fund, agreed by my line manager.

30th Anniversary of the Erasmus Programme

This June marks the 30th anniversary of the Erasmus programme and Middlesex University is joining the celebrations on the 29th through a dedicated day of talks and workshops. The event will be an occasion to find out interesting details about the programme and its great benefits (international collaboration, cultural exchange, learning new skills, personal growth).

Ruxandra Anghel from our department has been invited to give a presentation focusing on how we can make the Erasmus experience different and personalised, based on the unforgettable adventure Fiona and Ruxandra had last year in Lisbon.

Plan of the day and workshops schedule are below. And here is the registration link:


If you cannot make it on the 29th, but you are interested to know more about Erasmus, please contact Ruxandra Anghel. She is also looking for an Erasmus partner in creativity for the next academic year.
