Since 2007, Oxfordpsych have been helping psychiatrists prepare for the Royal College of Psychiatrist CASC exams, both in the UK and overseas. Over the past twelve years, we have worked with many doctors who are now senior psychiatrists both across the UK, and in many countries overseas. You are most welcome to join us!

The aim of Oxfordpsych training is to enable every psychiatry trainee appearing for the CASC exams to demonstrate the clinical and communication skills needed to pass well, with confidence. We offer intensive, personalised training, focusing on both the clinical and communication skills and competencies being assessed in CASC, which are then applied across the range of stations in the RCPSych CASC blueprint, including those in the new station format. Our teaching techniques are rooted in adult learning theory, and as a team, we are passionate about supporting you and enabling you to do well. 

We offer a range of training opportunities including:

  • Comprehensive CASC Courses - UK, India, Malaysia, Cairo
  • New* Irish BST Clinical Exam Course
  • Mock CASC Exams - EIS - Sheffield
  • Oxfordpsych Overseas - Malaysia, India, Ireland, Cairo, Dublin
  • Online CASC Materials and CASC videos


For more information, please see the relevant pages, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions - we are always happy to help!

"Very well structured; good teaching of clinical core skills and methods to approach stations; exam orientated; lots of practice." Oxford 2017

"Excellent course. I didn't expect to learn so much that was also relevant for my general clinical practice... I feel calmer, unparalysed, safer" Oxford 2017

"The teachers were not afraid to demonstrate or put themselves in our position." Oxford 2014
