Course content

This diploma is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of Neuropsychology and delivers the adult knowledge component of the competency requirements for advanced training in clinical neuropsychology. This represents the first step in gaining eligibility to join the UK Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists (SRCN).

Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust has delivered professionally accredited training in clinical neuropsychology. By partnering with a large and well-established clinical neuropsychology department within North Bristol NHS Trust, this programme provides both clinical expertise and academic excellence. Around 80 per cent of the taught content is delivered by practising clinicians, and you will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

The programme is largely distance based (excluding exams and teaching weeks), and can be taken from home or work. Lectures are recorded and can be watched live or whenever is convenient. Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage for more information.
