Course content

This programme provides an opportunity to specialise in theoretical and practical aspects of neuropsychology. It aims to provide an integrated understanding of brain function, clinical neuropsychology and neuropsychological research techniques. The emphasis of this course is on the theoretical basis of the link between brain and behaviour, and the basic research methods to study this link.

Clinical syndromes, assessment methods and considerations feature heavily in the MSc. However, students with a clear ambition to pursue a career in clinical psychology may consider the MSc in Applied Neuropsychology that is run by the School of Experimental Psychology in partnership with the Department of Neurosciences within North Bristol NHS Trust.

The MSc in Neuropsychology is particularly suited to students who want to boost their research skills, for example with a view to undertaking a PhD or pursuing a career in experimental psychology, neuroscience or related disciplines.
