About

The Mental Health Sciences programme at University College London (UCL) is an opportunity for students to train in a wide range of fields relevant to mental health research.

Overview

Mental illness is very common and a major public health problem. Over half of adult disorders begin by age 15, and one-in-four people in the UK has experienced clinically relevant symptoms within the past year. Treatments help many but do not work for a large proportion of people and, so far, have failed to reduce prevalence.

To create genuine change in this field, we need to develop innovative preventative strategies and treatments and apply existing ones more effectively through understanding the mechanisms that drive symptoms.

The Mental Health Sciences programme at University College London (UCL) will provide a platform for the interdisciplinary research we need to translate findings from work on mechanisms and risk factors into novel treatments and prevention strategies.

Improving diversity

Equality, diversity, & inclusion are fundamental to society. A key goal for this programme is to increase the representation of students with minoritised status and support their progress and welfare once recruited. 

With respect to the Equalities Act of 2010, by minoritised status, we refer to ethnicity, recognising that differences between individual ethnicities are very important; gender; sexuality, gender identity and reassignment; disability; age; marriage and civil partnership status; and pregnancy and maternity. 

We welcome neurodivergent applicants and will make adjustments to the recruitment process to help overcome specific challenges.

  • Repatriation, if something happens to you or your family
  • Liability
  • Home contents and baggage
  • Accidents
  • Legal aid
