MRes Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology

This is a unique two-year UCL international Masters programme, with the first year based at University College London and the second year based at Yale University, New Haven in the USA. Typically 10 students are accepted each year. The focus of this programme is on understanding the emergence of developmental psychopathology from multiple perspectives, drawing on neurobiological, cognitive, developmental, clinical and psychoanalytic perspectives. A substantial research project is completed in the second year at Yale. As an MRes, this Master’s programme provides an excellent framework to advance students' research skills, important for those planning a future PhD or Clinical Doctorate.
