Course summary

This unique two-year international programme is offered in collaboration with Yale University. There is a focus on developmental psychopathology drawing on multidisciplinary perspectives, with a specific emphasis on neuroscience. Students spend year one in London, primarily based at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and year two in Yale. The programme provides students with an excellent foundation in developmental psychopathology and neuroscience, with a focus on: The emergence of childhood clinical disorders (e.g. autism, depression and PTSD); Multiple theoretical frameworks of disorder; Research practice, including science communication; The translational issues around research and psychological treatments.

Careers

Typically our students are interested in pursuing a research or clinical career. Of students who graduated within the last two years, 20% are now enrolled on PhD programmes; 40% are employed as research associates, 20% are undertaking further training and the remaining 20% are undertaking clinical work.

Employability

The two-year structure allows students to not only develop in-depth theoretical knowledge and research skills but also provides the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of research under the mentorship of a leading Yale academic and their research lab. A grounding in quantitative analysis and fMRI/EEG skills combined with a focus on clinical disorders during childhood make students particularly attractive as prospective PhD candidates and doctoral Clinical Psychology applicants. Students are encouraged to publish their research where possible.
