Course summary

Professional programmes in Clinical Neuropsychology have been offered within University of Bristol since 2010 and are delivered in partnership with North Bristol NHS Trust, which includes a large regional neurosciences and major trauma centre. Our Clinical courses aim to engage and inspire clinicians to enhance their skills in Clinical Neuropsychology and support entry on to the British Psychological Society's (BPS) Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists (SRCN). This MSc is accredited by the BPS and delivers the adult knowledge and practice component of the competency requirements for advanced training in clinical neuropsychology. Around 80% of the taught content is delivered by practising clinicians. We promote a biopsychosocial scientist-practitioner approach and strongly advocate for neuropsychological research to be relevant and applicable to patient care, and for clinical practice to be underpinned by a thorough and ongoing engagement with scientific research. In order to accrue relevant clinical experience, it is your responsibility to secure paid employment within a neuropsychology service during your enrolment on the MSc. It is also your responsibility to secure supervision for your work when enrolled on the course. However, we provide additional oversight and support towards developing your case portfolio and ensuring your clinical experience demonstrates the required competencies for entry to the SRCN. This support is provided by clinicians on the SRCN and offers opportunities for feedback on case reports, including a practice viva experience. The programme is largely online and can be taken from home or work. Exams will be held online. Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage for more information. https://www.bristol.ac.uk/psychology/courses/postgraduate/neuropsychology/ Possible start dates are January 2024, September 2024 and January 2025.
