Affective Disorders MSc

Loading...

Our Affective Disorders course has been created for a broad spectrum of students and mental health professionals who are interested in specialist training from world-class experts. You will study all aspects of affective disorders, ranging from their characterisation and assessment to the challenges in treating these conditions. Our course is designed to be interdisciplinary and its focus is on both biological and psychological aspects. It is therefore suitable for students who seek to broaden their knowledge beyond professional boundaries, such as medicine and psychology.

Key benefits

  • Specialist careers for those interested in studying or researching affective disorders.
  • Valuable insight from internationally leading clinicians and scientists specialising in affective disorders.
  • An optional clinical observership in a key mental health service that treats patients with affective disorders (dependent on social distancing rules during the ongoing pandemic).
