About the course
September 2021 entry
The Dementia MSc is offered by the Division of Psychiatry and Queen Square Institute of Neurology and tackles one of the biggest global health problems facing society today. It provides research-oriented and cutting-edge training in the study of dementia and its scientific basis, led by international leaders in the science and practice of dementia.
The mental health pathway focuses on equipping students with advanced knowledge of the prevention, detection and management of the dementias using epidemiological, psychosocial and clinical trial approaches, and is aimed at graduates wishing to explore or begin a research career in dementia.
The neuroscience pathway brings the latest bench-top research findings to the bedside, develops and integrates basic and clinical neuroscience skills, and equips students for future careers in the clinical practice or basic neuroscience of dementia.
Our flagship Dementia MSc is helping to meet the global dementia challenge - by focusing our world-leading research and expertise in dementia prevention, diagnosis and treatment to inspire and equip the next generation of international clinicians and scientists to solve the daunting challenge of finding a cure for dementia.
