Course content

Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and a regional department of the UK National Health Service (NHS) has delivered educational courses and professionally accredited training in clinical neuropsychology.

This distance-learning diploma is available to students who live outside the UK and have a degree in psychology or a related discipline. The taught content of this diploma is identical to the taught content we provide when training clinical psychologists in the UK to specialise in clinical neuropsychology. The programme therefore delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practice and issues. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Around 80 per cent of our taught content is delivered by practising clinicians, and alongside lectures you can also engage in online tutorials with clinicians and academics. The programme will deepen your knowledge and experience of clinical neuropsychology and help prepare you for work or further training in a wide range of neuropsychology and clinical positions.

This flexible distance-learning programme allows you to avoid the costs of studying abroad, while the part-time option allows you to continue working and maintaining other commitments. All aspects of delivery are identical to the UK-based programme but with additional online sessions providing academic and pastoral support. All lectures are streamed live on the internet and recorded for you to replay at any point. Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage for more information.

This diploma is also available as a Bristol-based programme, while our MSc in Applied Neuropsychology includes a research project as part of the degree.
