(Student Profile)

Paul Buckley

After completing a BSc in Psychology with Clinical Psychology, I was faced with the inevitable dilemma encountered by most psychology graduates: which branch of psychology should I do my graduate study in?
I wanted to keep my options open so I chose the MSc Mental Health Studies (Organisational Psychiatry & Psychology) to gain an up-to-date knowledge of psychology as applied in clinical, as well as organisational settings.
Studying at King's College London and the Institute of Psychiatry has been extremely fulfilling and enjoyable. I believe the comprehensive academic education I have received has put me in a prominent position to achieve my plans of undertaking doctoral training in clinical psychology and ultimately becoming a consultant.
I would advise prospective students to take advantage of the plethora of extracurricular activities offered by King's College London Students' Union (KCLSU) clubs and societies, as these will further enhance your experience at King's.
