Student profile

 “My interest in completing a PhD in mental health research led me to the Institute of Psychiatry which has an outstanding international reputation and is conveniently located in London. I was able to secure an Economic, Social Research Council and Medical Research Councils’ Interdisciplinary Studentship with the support of King’s College London staff, which has funded me throughout my course. King’s has a very supportive and encouraging study environment. Students have access to a number of academic services such as excellent libraries and fantastic training courses.”
