The structure of the course is quite demanding and requires constant involvement in multiple activities. It combines effectively theory, practice and research. I gained a lot by attending a variety of lectures held by some of the most recognised and well-known child and adolescent mental health researchers and practitioners. I enhanced my clinical skills by doing my clinical placement -in the framework of the studies- in one of the busiest child and adolescent mental health clinics in South London. I also had the opportunity to complete my research dissertation that mastered my capacities in methodology and statistics.
Studying at King's College London and particularly at the Institute of Psychiatry was a unique personal achievement. It was very important to know that I was part of an academic body with substantial scientific weight and international recognition.
After the end of the programme I intend to work as a psychologist either in the research or the clinical field. I consider that the MSc will constitute a fundamental basis for the fulfillment of my future professional objectives.
