MSc Mental Health, Trauma and Psychological Wellbeing

Launching in September 2023, this course is delivered in collaboration with Lviv Polytechnic National University (LPNU) in Ukraine as part of a formal twinning arrangement. Students will begin their learning with LPNU, before completing their studies with NTU.

The programme will be taught online and is open to all nationalities, with scholarships available for students in Ukraine.

The course focuses on supporting people with the trauma of war and mental health recovery. The two-year dual-award pilot aims to contribute to the long-term mental health recovery for those involved in the conflict. It has been funded with a grant from Mosaik, an organisation which helps refugees to access higher education.
