About

The Dementia - Causes, Treatments and Research (Mental Health) programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is offered jointly by the UCL Division of Psychiatry and Institute of Neurology and tackles one of the biggest global health problems facing society today. 

Overview

Dementia - Causes, Treatments and Research (Mental Health) programme offered at the University College London (UCL) provides research-oriented and cutting-edge training in the study of dementia and its scientific basis, led by international leaders in the science and practice of dementia. 

Two specialised pathways, in mental health and in neuroscience, are offered.

The mental health pathway focuses on equipping students with advanced knowledge of the prevention, detection and management of the dementias using epidemiological, psychosocial and clinical trial approaches, and is aimed at graduates wishing to explore or begin a research career in dementia.

Careers

Previous Dementia MSc-level graduates of the Division have had a strong track record of publishing papers based on their dementia research projects in peer reviewed journals, and have secured PhD scholarships (both at national and international level); academic/research posts undertaking research in dementia; or further training in clinical psychology. For clinicians, the course allows them to participate fully in collaborative studies and begin their research career as independent investigators in dementia research.

Employability

This unique and exciting programme will equip graduates with advanced knowledge of the prevention and treatment of dementia, and strong practical research skills in order to undertake doctoral research in the field. 

They will acquire in-depth understanding of the current status and direction of research for the treatment and care of people with dementia and their families, providing them with a strong foundation for doctoral studies, and applications for nationally funded fellowships and national and international PhD scholarships. 

They will complete original research in their specific field of interest, learning about dementia research directly from experts working in clinical and research areas in dementia.
