About

The Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is offered in collaboration with Yale University. There is a focus on developmental psychopathology drawing on multidisciplinary perspectives, with a specific emphasis on neuroscience. 

Overview

The Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology programme offered at the University College London (UCL) provides students with an excellent foundation in developmental psychopathology and neuroscience, with a focus on:

  • The emergence of childhood clinical disorders (e.g. autism, depression and PTSD)
  • Multiple theoretical frameworks of disorder
  • Research practice, including science communication
  • The translational issues around research and psychological treatments

Careers

Typically our students are interested in pursuing a research or clinical career. Of students who graduated within the last two years, 20% are now enrolled on PhD programmes; 40% are employed as research associates, 20% are undertaking further training and the remaining 20% are undertaking clinical work.

Employability

The two-year structure allows students to not only develop in-depth theoretical knowledge and research skills but also provides the opportunity to undertake a substantial piece of research under the mentorship of a leading Yale academic and their research lab. 

A grounding in quantitative analysis and fMRI/EEG skills combined with a focus on clinical disorders during childhood make students particularly attractive as prospective PhD candidates and doctoral Clinical Psychology applicants. Students are encouraged to publish their research where possible.
