    The course is based on a structured study of the fundamental texts of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis. It provides the perfect foundation for doctoral research in clinical psychoanalysis or psychoanalysis applied to other fields such as literature and philosophy, film and media.

    The Psychoanalysis MA is the only MA in the UK taught with the support of psychoanalysts in connection with the Department of Psychoanalysis at Paris-8 University. This Department was founded by Jacques Lacan himself.

    What will you study?

    Freud and Lacan's teachings highlight the inseparable relationship between culture and clinical practice. The MA offers the opportunity to study the fundamental texts of Freudian and Lacanian psychoanalysis, current research in the Freudian field and the application of analytical concepts in practice. The programme begins with a foundation module on Freud's metapsychology. Other topics studied include Freud's theory of culture and the social bond, Jacques Lacan's return to Freud, and Jacques-Alain Miller's recent clinical elaborations such as ordinary psychosis. You will study four taught modules and prepare a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

    London is a historical centre for psychoanalysis and annual trips to the Freud Museum and other areas of historical and current significance will be undertaken.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
