The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust are a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults. The Stuart Hall Foundation/Tavistock studentship is aimed at widening access to the M7 course and to the Child Psychotherapy clinical training at the Tavistock Centre, with applications invited from students who identify as Black, Asian or of Mixed Heritage. The bursary can contribute to the student’s fees up to Post Graduate Diploma qualification, and also to the cost of psychoanalytic psychotherapy fees in order to support a student should they wish subsequently to apply for a training in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (M80).

The successful candidates will undertake research projects that focus on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and/or inequalities, and their work will align with one of the DTP’s seven thematic interdisciplinary pathways.
We wish them all a warm welcome and very best wishes with their research.
