The BSc(Hons) degree in Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a post registration course for professionals who are either new to working with children, young people and families or who are seeking to build upon recent experience through the attainment of a recognised specialised qualification.
Our Child and Adolescent Mental Health is a new programme developed in response to local and national policy relating to the field of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Practice. It aims to enable different professional groups working within the field of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services to enhance their existing practice and develop specialist knowledge and skills.
This course was developed in close partnership with colleagues from clinical practice to ensure relevance for students. A range of subject material, innovative teaching, learning and assessment strategies and the personal development planning opportunities embodied within this programme will furnish the practitioner student with skills to react to these demands and also foster lifelong learning opportunities.
Part-time: Two years. This course requires attendance at one study day per week for two years.

*Tuition Fees are per year unless otherwise stated.
For 2019/20 fees please refer to our fees page.
For changes to 2017 UCAS tariff entry requirements please see our Essential and Important Course Information. UCLan requires all undergraduate applicants to have a minimum attainment of five GCSEs at grade C and above, or equivalent, (including Maths and English). In 2017 and beyond we will view the new Grade 4 as being equivalent to a C grade and will therefore require students to achieve GCSE Grade 4 or above. However, if the subject is relevant to our degree programme and requires a higher GCSE grade (e.g. GCSE B grade), and/or includes a Professional body that governs the entry requirements, Grade 5 or above may be required.
