Hi everyone,

I'm currently deciding on a Master's to study on, so that I can strengthen my chances to gain work experience (as an assistant psychologist/research associate) and gain a stepping stone towards successful admission onto a Doctorate in clinical psychology.

I am torn between two courses: King's College London's Mental Health Studies MSc, and the University of Warwick's Clinical Applications in Psychology MSc.

Both courses are great opportunities to gain knowledge and skills in clinical psychology, however a key difference is that Warwick offers a guaranteed placement in an NHS trust while King's offers to help arrange a placement (but is not guaranteed). I definitely prefer King's as a university (given its rich history in psychiatry and psychology, as well as the opportunity to study in central London) but I somewhat prefer Warwick's course, given the guaranteed placement.

I would be extremely grateful for any opinions or suggestions on which course would be the best one to take!

Thank you!
