Course summary

Whether your background is in psychology, history or art, mental health nursing is a rewarding career with unlimited potential for doing good in the world.

We don’t accept everyone on our course – we want to be sure you have the potential to succeed in this demanding job. But once you’re part of our community, we’ll do everything we can to make sure you’re happy and achieving your best.

  • Study at the #1 Nursing faculty in the UK and 2nd in the world (QS World University Rankings 2019). Spearheaded by the Dean, Professor Ian Norman- a qualified and practicing mental health nurse, social worker and the Editor in Chief of the International Journal of Nursing Studies.
  • With King's, mental health nursing students can experience working at the UK’s biggest provider of mental health services and could gain clinical placement experience at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust- renowned for being the world’s oldest psychiatric ward
  • Join our diverse, friendly community – people of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities come here to study.


Our Mental Health course equips you with both the practical skills and the theoretical understanding of how to care for people effectively. Being in the heart of London, you’ll come across a really diverse mix of patients and situations. So when you leave King’s, you’ll be ready to take on any challenge.

Graduating students will possess the knowledge, skills and values to perform competently with a range of clients/patients and presentations, both in hospitals and in community settings. They will also develop skills in planning, leading and evaluating high quality care to clients/patients, their families and carers and to work effectively with inter-professional and inter-agency teams.

As you’d expect from a mental health course, we’re committed to supporting you. Our staff and student wellbeing research project helps us develop new ways to improve welfare.

Career prospects:

We are the leading Faculty of Nursing, Midwifery & Palliative Care in London, holding an excellent reputation for producing outstanding clinicians and world leaders in specialist areas. Graduates who qualify from our courses also gain professional registration as a Mental Health Nurse from the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Many of our qualifying nurses go on to further study or gain employment in prominent London NHS Trusts, while others choose to work elsewhere in the UK and abroad. There are varied choices of career destinations from hospital and in-patient services, community services and teams, charity and independent sector, criminal justice system and prisons, research, teaching and management. Whatever the chosen pathway, our mental health graduates are well-prepared to face the challenges of a career in mental health and the complexities of pioneering healthcare.
