Study with us
Our mission is to teach psychiatry to medical students, develop future researchers in our graduate programme, teach doctors in training, and to promote excellence in clinical practice.
Welcome to the Department of Psychiatry. Whether you are interested in pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate study in Medical Sciences, in studying to become a doctor or undertaking a clinical elective here, we have links here to the resources you'll need. The University of Oxford Medical School is able to offer up to 50 elective placements to non-Oxford students per academic year (September – August). Any clinical medical student from any country (including the UK) is eligible to apply.
The Department of Psychiatry offers two research degrees (DPhil and MSc). Research degrees can be completed full- or part-time. Areas of study include laboratory-based neuroscience, brain imaging, literature synthesis and psychological and pharmacological treatment research.
MSc Taught Course in Clinical and Therapeutic Neuroscience
The one-year, full-time taught MSc is delivered by pre-clinical and clinical research teams based in the Department of Psychiatry, in Oxford University centres within the neuroscience community, and in the NIHR Oxford Cognitive Health Clinical Research Facility.
