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.  

You’ll also join an IoPPN team to carry out your own original research project. This gives you the chance to put your statistical skills into action and delve into an area that interests you. You can find a list of publications from previous students’ work on our department webpage.

Career prospects

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.
