Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust announces scholarships of between 20% and 50% total part time fees to support clinical staff in North London Trusts to undertake the UCL MSc in Mental Health Sciences Research or the MSc Dementia: Causes, Treatment and Research (Mental Health) based in the UCL Division of Psychiatry, commencing at the end of September 2021. Awards can be used in combination with other scholarships or study leave funding.

The course provides a practical and stimulating training in research skills, appropriate for mental health professionals with a strong interest in becoming researchers/academic clinicians.

These scholarships are open only to staff currently working within Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. Scholarships are especially intended for clinicians, but applications from staff without clinical qualifications who have worked in the Trusts for at least two years will also be considered. Trainees who are qualified clinicians, such as junior psychiatrists on rotation, will also be considered. Service users undertaking paid roles such as peer support workers are also encouraged to apply.

To be considered, please apply for the MSc in Mental Health Sciences Research or the MSc Dementia: Causes, Treatment and Research (Mental Health) at UCL and please also send to Christina Kalantzi, MSc Course Administrator at c.kalantzi@ucl.ac.uk, a CV of a maximum of 2 pages summarising your relevant achievements, especially related to research, and a 500 word statement summarising:

  1. How you envisage research being part of your future career;
  2. What topic in mental health you would like to research in future, why, and how you would approach it.

Awards will be made on this basis to both new and continuing students.

Deadline: 5pm, Monday 26th July 2021
