Course content

Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust has delivered professionally accredited training in clinical neuropsychology.

The MSc is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) Division of Neuropsychology and delivers teaching and support that provides both the adult knowledge and practice competencies required for entry on to the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists (SRCN).

Knowledge competencies are delivered through teaching and around 80 per cent of this taught content is delivered by practising clinicians. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Alongside taught content relating to the adult knowledge competencies, this MSc also provides support for you to develop your practical experience and competencies in clinical neuropsychology. In order to acquire relevant clinical experience, it is your responsibility to secure paid employment within a neuropsychology service during your enrolment on the MSc. It is also your responsibility to secure supervision for your work when enrolled on the course. However, we provide additional oversight and support towards developing your case portfolio and ensuring your clinical experience demonstrates the required competencies for entry to the SRCN. This support includes feedback on two written case reports and a practice viva experience. It is provided by clinicians with experience of conducting portfolio vivas for the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN).

Please see the Neuropsychology programme webpage for more information.
