About

UCL Division of Psychiatry offers students a broad range of possible PhD supervisors to gain the skills they will need for a career in most areas of mental health research - from bench and biology to neuroscience, psychology and applied clinical research. The Mental Health Sciences programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Overview

The UCL Division of Psychiatry represents a unique interdisciplinary grouping of international experts in psychiatry encompassing epidemiological, biological, genetic, social science and health services research as well as trials. The Mental Health Sciences programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

Close collaborations with the Queen Square Institute of Neurology and the Division of Infection and Immunity provide diverse academic resources and a rich study environment. The Division also hosts the Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department.

We offer unrivalled access to clinical and community samples in which to conduct cutting-edge translational research, having strong collaborative links with five NHS trusts operating within diverse, multicultural populations. 

For graduate research, detailed and considered discussions with prospective supervisors and the Graduate Tutor are provided prior to admission, to ensure research and career aspirations match each student’s experience.
