The MSc in Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a comprehensive programme designed for professionals in Health, Education, Social Care, and Voluntary care services who have experience working with children and adolescents. While a core professional qualification is preferred, it is not essential. The course spans three years and offers two pathways in the final year: a full research pathway or a taught research pathway. The teaching methods are diverse, including role play, experiential learning, and structured reflection. The programme focuses on areas such as attachment, childhood development, parenting, and trauma-informed care. A first or upper second class honours degree is required, though lower second class degrees will be considered with demonstrated ability at Masters level.
