About

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is delivered through a blend of clinical and research expertise with a focus on delivering high standards of clinical care. You will be encouraged to apply your critical and analytical thinking skills to theory, policy and practice in child and adolescent mental health.

Overview

Through the Child and Adolescent Mental Health programme offered at the University College London (UCL) you will gain clinical, professional, academic and research skills in child and adolescent mental health and their application to underpin clinical practice.

In addition, you will gain skills in analysing principles of policy, planning and management in child and adolescent mental health and you will increase your understanding of the impact of culture and diversity on clinical theory and practice. 

Throughout the course, our aim is for you to experience enhanced personal and professional development.

Teaching and learning

The programme is taught through a combination of lectures, workshops, discussion, project work and independent and group study. Assessment includes written assignments, unseen written examinations, projects, oral presentations, group work, and the written dissertation.

Careers

The programme provides career development training for doctors, psychologists and practitioners in social work and education who intend to focus and develop their careers in the areas of child mental health.

Recent graduates from this programme have gone on to Clinical Doctorates in Psychology or had opportunities for progression in their current careers.

Employability

This programme attracts psychology graduates who wish to enhance their opportunities for progression to further clinical psychology training, and trainees in child psychiatry who wish to supplement their basic training with a higher degree; the MSc programme is closely aligned to the Royal College’s recommended curriculum. 

Students from social work, nursing and education backgrounds will benefit from the acquisition of advanced skills in the theory and practice of working with young people with mental health difficulties. Clinical placements are available as an extracurricular option for students who aim to develop their career in a profession related to clinical practice.
