Undergraduate courses in Academic Psychiatry

King’s is ranked 2nd in the world for psychology and psychiatry (US News Best Global Universities).

Study of the mind and human brain is one of the most exciting and important areas of advancing medical science, and making a difference is at the heart of what we do.

Whether it’s conducting ground-breaking research, enhancing patient care, influencing policy change, raising awareness of conditions affecting the brain or sharing knowledge through education, our principle aim is to understand how the mind and brain work, and how we can help prevent and treat mental and neurological disorders. 

Drawing upon a rich history and through our links with the South London & Maudsley NHS Trust (SLaM), the largest provider of mental health services in the UK, you will get the opportunity to work alongside world-leading scientists and clinicians, and benefit from outstanding career, networking and mentoring opportunities.
