Course content

The Applied Paediatric Neuropsychology programme is designed to provide you with training in the various aspects of science underpinning clinical paediatric neuropsychology practice. The programme is suitable for outstanding psychology postgraduates who are not yet qualified as clinical or educational psychologists, but are motivated to study paediatric neuropsychology at this stage of their career, or for international clinicians not registered with the HCPC.

This programme covers all key areas of the syllabus recommended by the BPS Division of Neuropsychology and draws on the wealth of specialist expertise in neuropsychology within UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) and other related neuroscience and psychology departments within UCL, as well as Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH). You will also have the opportunity to hear from external speakers who are international experts within their area of specialism.

UCL GOS ICH has a very close relationship with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children and much of its research and teaching are carried out on a joint basis.
