A dynamic blend of clinical and research expertise is reflected in the delivery of this multi-disciplinary programme where high standards of clinical care are fostered and students are encouraged to apply their critical and analytical thinking skills to theory, policy and practice in child and adolescent mental health.

What will I learn?

The programme will develop your ability to identify and analyse principles of policy, planning and management in child and adolescent mental health. You will gain professional, academic and research skills and understand how their application can improve clinical practice. You will increase your understanding of the impact of culture and diversity upon clinical theory and practice, and experience enhanced personal and professional development.

Why should I study this degree at UCL?

The Institute of Child Health pursues an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to enhance understanding, diagnosis, therapy and prevention of childhood diseases. Our research and our educational portfolio covers a broad range of paediatric issues, from molecular genetics to population health sciences, and our structure facilitates interdisciplinary work and allows flexibility for the development of new areas of investigation.

Our close relationship with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children means that much of our research and teaching is carried out on a joint basis. Students benefit from excellent facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.

This Master's programme aims to blend academic theory and research with clinical knowledge to enable professionals to deliver a high standard of clinical care.

Clinical placements are provided as an additional option for students who wish to supplement their basic MSc course and these experiences can add value to the MSc for those who aim to develop their career in a profession related to clinical practice.
