We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The IoPPN is a world leader in the research, study and practice of psychiatry, psychology and related disciplines. Our world-class research-led learning experience attracts the very best students from around the world who enjoy unrivalled learning opportunities.
We have three world class divisions: Psychology & System Sciences, Psychiatry and Neuroscience, which share a vision to understand how the mind and the brain work and to use this understanding to improve quality of life and clinical outcomes of individuals with mental health problems or neurological disorders. With the incorporation of neuroscience into the Institute we are in the unique position of being a global research centre that can truly integrate neuroscience into mental health research.
The Psychology & Neuroscience of Mental Health MSc/PG Dip/PG Cert provides a comprehensive and integrated exploration of our current understanding of the psychological and neuroscientific basis of mental health. It draws upon the wealth of research, education, clinical expertise and experience across the world-renowned Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN). The online master’s course promotes an understanding of the evidence base for comprehending the biological, psychological and socio-environmental factors important in the development and maintenance of mental health, and evidence underlining the development and efficacy of the range of treatments of mental health problems.
IoPPN teaching staff are senior scientists, clinicians, and educators. Scientists will showcase cutting edge research into the causes and treatment of mental health problems; clinicians will be presenting current best practice in treatment approaches, and students will be supported by a team of educators with vast experience of designing and delivering scientific, clinical and applied education and training.
The course is delivered 100 per cent online. Students work in small, interactive classes with academic staff, and also receive additional support and guidance. With cutting edge expertise, the impact of the IoPPN’s work was 100 per cent world leading or internationally excellent, and our research environment was judged as 100 per cent world leading (Research Excellence Framework, 2014). You will have online access to teaching materials developed from experts across King's College London, providing a comprehensive and multidisciplinary perspective of important mental health problems. We will support you to develop and demonstrate research and critical appraisal skills that will permit appreciation, interpretation and reporting of research evidence, as preparation for research or further education.
Neuroscience is an exciting and emerging discipline, which seeks to understand the most complex organ in the body – the brain. Neuroscience is a modern, multidisciplinary subject. As such, it draws together knowledge and expertise from many areas of science, from molecular biology to the psychological study of the mind.
This innovative qualification from King’s College London is 100 per cent online and taught part time over two years, so students can balance study alongside work and life commitments. This postgraduate course will allow you to apply your neuroscience knowledge to real world settings. From the research lab to marketing, the application of neuroscience has the potential to deepen your understanding of how the nervous system serves to drive our every thought, sensation and emotion.
The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) is one of the leading providers of neuroscience education in the UK, and Europe’s largest centre for research and postgraduate education in psychiatry, psychology and basic and clinical neuroscience.
Our research centres are at the international forefront of this field and we are world renowned for the high quality of our research. The 100 per cent online Applied Neuroscience Postgraduate Diploma and MSc course allows you to benefit from an innovative and contemporary curriculum, whist learning from our world leading scientists.
