Course summary

This MSc is only available to non-residents of the UK who wish to study via distance learning. The taught content of this MSc is identical to the taught content we provide when training qualified professional Clinical Psychologists in the UK who wish to specialise in Clinical Neuropsychology. The course therefore delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practice and clinical training. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation. The course will also develop your knowledge of anatomy, brain function and techniques employed to study the human brain. Around 80% of the course is delivered by clinicians practicing in UK hospitals and we teach a large range of clinical skills which will support those who seek a career working with patients or conducting clinical research. Weekly online tutorials (during term-time) with Clinical Neuropsychologists give students an opportunity to interact with professionals and learn from their many years of experience. The MSc is focused upon evidence-based approaches and recognises biological, psychological, and social factors which impact upon brain injury, disease and the patient experience. The programme includes a clinical dissertation in which students will study material drawn from existing clinical cases and consider diagnoses, formulation, treatment, and patient management. The dissertation includes 1:1 career mentoring, further training in clinical assessment and consideration of cultural differences in the principles of assessment and treatment. This degree supports part time study (over two years) for international students.
