    - A new international online programme jointly operated by the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London, Virginia Commonwealth University and the University of Adelaide.
    - Provides students with access to the facilities and expertise of three of the top international research institutions in the field of Addictions.
    - Unique focus on addictions policy, programme development and evaluation.

    The programme focuses on addictions policy, programme development and evaluation. As most master's programmes related to addiction focus on clinical issues and direct service, this programme offers a unique study opportunity, targeting a previously under-served audience.

    This is an opportunity for students in all areas of the globe, both urban and rural, to obtain a graduate degree delivered by top experts in the field in the three leading countries for addictions.

    Each institution offers two content-specific modules in their areas of specialisation, for example the Institute of Psychiatry will offer: Evidence Base for Addiction Treatment; Theoretical Models of Psychological Interventions; Policy & Guidelines for Special Populations; Dissertation.

    Programme format and assessment

    The programme will be delivered completely online. Modules will be five-week blocks run consecutively, with pre-recorded lectures audio-streamed or sent via CD-Rom to participants. Evaluation will be based on participation in non-synchronous online discussions, written assignments, and a final examination at the end of each semester.
    Student destinations
    Students pursue a variety of careers eg clinical specialist, psychology assistant, drug worker, research assistant, substance misuse nurse specialist, or further study eg PhD or Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Programme.
