Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

Research may include studying both common and rarer, severe disorders that start in childhood often persisting into adulthood such as: autism spectrum disorders; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; conduct disorder; affective disorders; substance misuse; obsessive compulsive disorder; intellectual disability and eating disorder as well as parenting problems and deliberate self harm. Researchers aim to improve the understanding of how mental disorders develop and establish methods of treatment and prevention and to apply the results to make new treatments and assessments, evaluate them and provide need and cost information for health services planners. Research also extends into risk factors (both biological and environmental) for the development of disorders and treatment strategies. A range of scientific methods, including epidemiology, behaviour and molecular genetics, neuroimaging and clinical trials can be used as a course of this research.

Good Honours degree (2.1 or above) from a UK university or the overseas equivalent. A 2.2 degree may be considered only where applicants also offer a Master's with merit (or international equivalents). Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5.
