How to Apply

Candidates are recruited internationally. We seek students from diverse backgrounds with an interest in interdisciplinary empirical research and a strong academic background in psychology, medicine, genetics, cognitive neuroscience, computational science (and related disciplines), but are open to candidates in other fields with a special interest in the relationship between psychoanalysis and other disciplines.  

Apply through University College London's online application system to the Master's in Research (MRes) in Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology. The first page of the online system includes guides to applying. 

The deadline for applications is in early June (details on the websites), but we strongly encourage interested students to apply as soon as possible. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and places are limited. Interviews are held in April and May, with a June and July round only when all places are not yet filled.

Further information and online applications are available at the Anna Freud Centre website and the University of College London website (apply here).
