Course summary

We are proud to have been awarded an IoPPN Excellence Award in 2018 for student satisfaction in the Postgraduate Taught Education Survey (PTES).

Learn how research has developed our understanding of mental health. Then explore how these discoveries can be used to help prevent, diagnose or develop new treatments.

Whether you’ve recently finished your undergraduate degree or already have a few years of experience, we’ll help you explore a range of methodologies including clinical trials, neuroimaging and genetics.

Description

Research into mental health disorders combines expertise from a vast number of areas, so students join us from psychology, neuroscience, pharmacology, medicine and more.

At King’s College London, our experts will give you a unique insight into the complex world of mental health. Many of the teaching team are active researchers uncovering the causes of disorders and finding treatments, others work in clinical settings with patients.

At the same time, you’ll have the chance to apply your skills in the real world. Partnering with South London and the Maudsley (SLaM) NHS Foundation Trust, we’re able to organise a range of placements. The Trust is the largest in the UK and provides a full range of mental health services for people of all ages.

Career prospects:

Some graduates work in clinical care or secure psychologist posts, while others work in academic research. In fact, a number of current IoPPN staff and PhD students are graduates from this MSc.

Throughout the course, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from King’s graduates and PhD students to find out what career path they decided to take and what their day-to-day responsibilities involve.

Whatever you decide to do next, we’re here to give you the support you need – whether that’s help writing your CV or guidance completing a PhD/DClinPsy applications.
