|What do people do with an MSc in Theoretical Psychoanalytic Studies|
Clinical training and further academic study are the two most popular destinations. Many students continue with their academic studies either at UCL or elsewhere, often registering for a PhD or applying for the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, while others in the past have gone on to do training in Psychotherapy, Child Psychotherapy or Counselling. Others return to their professional careers.
Some career advice can be offered to students in individual discussion with the Programme Director and Programme Tutor, who may be able to arrange for the student to have further discussion with colleagues, or to obtain fuller information about options (e.g. professional training or study for a PhD) from relevant sources.
