Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience at University of Nottingham - UCAS

Course summary

Cognitive neuroscience looks at how our brains support our thoughts, feelings and actions. On this course, you'll study core psychology modules with cognitive neuroscience practicals. You'll develop skills in brain imaging, behavioural measurement and physiological psychology. In years one and three you'll have optional modules to choose from. This is your chance to explore the areas of psychology that you find interesting. As we have experts across the spectrum of psychology, we are able to offer you a choice from different areas. For example, the Neuropsychology and Applied Neuroimaging module covers the effect of brain damage. You'll learn how it can impair language, memory and motor control. Our research is transforming lives. We want our students to be part of this. In your final year, you'll do your own research project. You'll have a wide choice of topics. These could be from behavioural to social psychology. The optional year in computer science will develop your skills in the interdisciplinary field of psychology and computer science. You will learn how the two subjects work together and you can study topics such as human-computer interaction and computer programming.


In year one you will study fundamental areas of cognitive psychology. This will provide you with a strong foundation of knowledge in this field. You will learn about developmental, social, and biological psychology. In your second year, you will study more advanced modules in cognitive psychology. This will develop your understanding to a higher level. You will learn about human memory, neuroscience, and personality differences such as criminal behavior. In year three you will develop an expert and specialised understanding in the field of psychology and cognitive neuroscience.
