Course content

Neuropsychology examines the uses of neuropsychology in the clinical world. Neuropsychology is central to the debate about the spark of individuality each human shows. This course looks at brain functions as an individual and in group settings, as well as studying the neuropsychology of mental health problems.

The course is an employability- centred extension to an undergraduate psychology degree. It is focused on neuropsychology, but is suitable for any student interested in preparing for an eventual career as a professional psychologist.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES
Current alumni pathways include the successful completion of a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology; NHS Research Assistant; and PhD studentship.
