Neuropsychology is the science linking the functioning of the brain with cognitive and emotional experience and behaviour. Neuropsychology represents the interface between the biological, psychological and social facets of human behaviour. This course is delivered in partnership with North Bristol NHS Trust. As a course team we are passionate about neuropsychology and its application to society to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of those affected by damage, disease or dysfunction affecting the brain. The taught content of the Diploma is identical to the taught content we provide when training qualified psychologists to specialise in neuropsychology. The programme therefore covers core content dictated by the British Psychological Society and 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 you will also receive weekly clinical tutorials (during term time) that allow you to discuss different aspects of programme content and help prepare you for a range of different career options. This programme is suitable for those looking to pursue a research career, professional positions (eg Assistant Psychologist) or further clinical training (such as a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology). Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/psychology/courses/postgraduate/neuropsychology/) for more information. There is also a distance-learning version (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/2023/life-sciences/pg-diploma-postgraduate-diploma-applied-neuropsychology-distance-learning/) of this programme for international students wishing to study from home.
