Course content

Mental health is becoming increasingly more challenging and multidisciplinary in practice so it’s essential to be able to deal with complex situations you may face as a healthcare professional, with confidence.

Run with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc, this masters course is a progression from the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Psychiatry, and on completion of the course you will receive a Masters in Clinical Psychiatry from the University of South Wales.

This course will enable those working in primary care or specialist units to take a specialist interest in clinical psychiatry and ultimately improve their care for patients displaying psychiatric symptoms.
