About

The Refugee Care programme at the University of Essex offers supervision in refugee care, allowing you to undertake research that introduces a therapeutic dimension and psychosocial perspective to your work with asylum seekers and/or refugees.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

Graduates of the Refugee Care programme at the University of Essex  go on to a number of different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use their time with us to deepen their understanding.

Specialist facilities

If you are studying within our Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies, you will have access to our extensive facilities to aid your learning and research. In particular, our Albert Sloman Library is well stocked with books, journals, electronic resources and major archives relevant to our work and, in addition, we have our own library of specialist books and journals.

In addition, our strong connections to the local NHS and other organisations facilitate placements and institutional observations for our students.

Programme Structure

  • A research degree doesn't have a taught structure, giving you the chance to investigate your chosen topic in real depth and reach a profound understanding.
  • In communicating that understanding, through a dissertation or other means, you have a rare opportunity to generate knowledge.
  • A research degree allows you to develop new high-level skills, enhance your professional development and build new networks. It can open doors to many careers
