Course Summary

Our MPhil Mental Health programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Mental Health. Our postgraduate research programmes in mental health are based on individually tailored projects. Applicants are specifically matched with a primary academic supervisor according to their research interest and background. All of our postgraduate research students have more than one supervisor, and our dynamic multidisciplinary supervisory teams typically cover a wide and diverse range of academic disciplines beyond mental health and psychology, including nursing, pharmacy, epidemiology and biostatics, informatics, health economics, sociology and qualitative research.

The programme provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy. The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.
