Course Summary

Overview

This is a potential research degree area, subject to the approval of the University. If you are interested in undertaking a research degree in this area.

The Division of Mental Health Nursing & Counselling has active research programmes (MSc, MPhil, PhD) in mental health nursing practice as a specialist discipline, with a focus on practitioners, education, clinical practice and pluralistic counselling. Researchers from both strands collaborate with colleagues from across the University.

The partnership with the Scottish Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Professionals Research Unit, has led to the Division having a thriving MSc by Research programme for mental health nurses.

The Division is also home to the Tayside Centre for Counselling – a counselling clinic, which supports research degrees in areas such as adjustment to disability and/or long-term health conditions, the effectiveness of counselling interventions, and development of the Pluralistic Framework for Counselling and Psychotherapy Integration.

The clinic is a partner to a number of other UK institutions with shared research aims.

Our research programmes will prepare you for a rewarding career as an academic and researcher, as well as opening up opportunities for a diverse range of careers outside of academia.
