This MSc fosters the application of critical and analytical thinking skills to theory, policy and practice in child and adolescent mental health.
It provides essential training in research and management approaches, and promotes personal reflection and growth in those already working in the field.
The aims of the course are:
- To provide participants with skills to integrate clinical knowledge, academic understanding and research findings into high quality professional practice
- To provide participants with training in research methods and statistics relevant to child and adolescent mental health through academic teaching and the supervised completion of a research project
You can complete the course as a full-time or as a part-time (modular/flexible) student. As a full-time student you would complete the course in one year. As a modular/flexible student you have between two and five years to complete the course.

Opportunity for Clinical Attachment
For students with sufficient relevant clinical experience* we are able to offer a limited number of clinical placements in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
The placements are for a minimum of one day a week for four months and will be supervised by medical and non-medical consultants within the service. Depending on the individual student's level of experience there will be opportunities for attendance at team meetings, observation of clinical practice and some joint clinical work. This element of the course will not be formally assessed but may offer opportunities to participate in research studies, audit and other academic and teaching activities in the host Trust.
Students will apply and be considered separately for this component of the course for which there will be an additional fee.
In addition to the IELTS level 7 requirement, students will need to demonstrate their registration with the relevant professional body and have an enhanced CRB check in order to secure an honorary contract with the Trust.
* post foundation years with some (ideally 4 to 6 months) experience in paediatrics or mental health
