While our Mental Health Studies course at King's College London offers mental health professionals a range of opportunities for continuing professional development, an equally high number of our students have not yet embarked on professional training. Some come with a relevant first degree, usually in psychology, and already have work experience in the mental health field.
- Choice of eight optional modules on offer in a number of different mental health fields.
- Regular contributions from practising clinicians, including world leading experts across all psychiatric specialties from the allied South London & Maudsley Hospital (SLaM), and from visiting specialist lecturers.
- Well-established Voluntary Clinical Placements module within SLaM, the largest UK NHS Trust.
- Opportunity to join existing research projects or develop your own research ideas.
Graduates pursue various careers in mental health, including clinical training, research assistant positions and PhD study.
After this MSc, you’ll have the skills you need to start a career in a variety of mental health areas. You’ll also be ready to apply for clinical training, research assistant positions, or PhD study.
With a grounding in issues and debates in the field, you’ll be a great fit for roles outside the NHS and academia too. For example, you might work as a consultant helping government bodies respond to disasters.
