We welcome applications from graduates with a good honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in a health or science based subject. Applicants must normally be a clinical physiologyst but those from other healthcare professions (e.g. registered nurse, clinical exercise physiologist, physiotherapist and medical practitioners) are also welcomed. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of three years' work experience in clinical physiology. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level.
Months of entry
Neurophysiologists diagnose and monitor disorders of the brain and nervous system, from epilepsy, strokes, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson's disease right down to problems with the tiniest nerves. It's an intellectually challenging, practical and rewarding specialism which can bring you into direct contact with the patients you'll be helping. There is currently a shortage of suitably qualified neurophysiologists in the NHS- which is where our course comes in.
- Our staff are supportive and hands-on – ever-ready with advice on your studies, they're also known for their strong pastoral care and for going the extra mile for their students. All our teaching staff are involved in research and many are pioneers in their own field.
- As well as a sound knowledge of how different problems affect the brain and nervous system, and modern diagnostic and research techniques, you'll develop the critical analysis skills needed for literature reviews and an understanding of relevant ethical issues.
- Our unique leadership and management module will give you additional skills to help you progress up the career ladder. You'll cover leadership and management theory, health and safety, quality control, research and statistical methods.
- The course will also improve your IT, numeracy, research, communication, teamwork, managerial, presentation and problem-solving skills.
