Course summary

This distance-learning diploma is only available to students who live outside the UK and have an undergraduate degree in psychology or a related discipline. Neuropsychology is the science linking the functioning of the brain with cognitive and emotional experience and behaviour. This degree is delivered in partnership with a regional department of the UK National Health Service (NHS). The taught content of this diploma is identical to the taught content we provide when training qualified psychologists in the UK to specialise in clinical neuropsychology. The programme therefore delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practice. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, formulation and rehabilitation. Around 80% of our taught content is delivered by practising clinicians, and alongside lectures you will engage in online tutorials with clinicians and academics. The programme will deepen your knowledge and skills in clinical neuropsychology and help prepare you for work or further training in a range of neuropsychology and clinical positions. This flexible distance-learning programme allows you to avoid the costs of studying abroad, while the part-time option allows you to continue working and maintaining other commitments. All aspects of delivery are identical to the UK-based programme. All lectures are streamed live on the internet and recorded for you to replay at any point, and exams are online. Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/psychology/courses/postgraduate/neuropsychology/) for more information. This diploma is also available as a Bristol-based programme, while our MSc in Applied Neuropsychology includes a research project as part of the degree. Possible start dates are January 2023, September 2023. Please see the programme page on our website for more information.
