We are proud to have been awarded an IoPPN Excellence Award in 2018 for student satisfaction in the Postgraduate Taught Education Survey (PTES). Attitudes to drug use and addiction are constantly evolving. You’ll need a strong understanding of the theory to work in the field – whether you’re aiming for a new position developing policy or want new tools to treat your patients.

As well as the biology and psychology, you’ll explore socio-environmental aspects of drug addiction and its prevention. And throughout the course we’ll explore how this knowledge transfers to different workplaces.

Key benefits - Study all aspects of addiction from policy to psychopharmacology

  • Go on placement in a clinical setting to really understand the subject in context

  • Learn from leading clinicians and experts from King’s renowned National Addiction Centre
