Still available – MSc Scholarships for UCL Psychiatry

By Sonia Johnson, on 22 July 2014

Applications are still being accepted from promising future researchers in mental health for our MSc Scholarships for 2014/15 entry.

Applications will be open for a few more days for the UCL Division of Psychiatry MSc in Clinical Mental Health Sciences. It offers pathways both for clinicians who wish to develop their research-led advanced knowledge in mental health, and for recent psychology graduates aiming to develop their understanding of mental health problems and of the current evidence on their aetiology and management.

The MSc in Mental Health Sciences Research is intended for clinicians wishing to develop as researchers and will be open until 1 September.
