Course content

Our MSc Cognitive Neuroscience combines research method training with in-depth study of the subject as a whole. During your time with us, you’ll become familiar with modern psychological research methods, for example fMRI, EEG, and TMS.

You’ll gain the ability to understand the neural basis of cognition, prepare research proposals, conduct critical reviews, and perform hands-on data analysis. You will also acquire transferable skills in oral and written communication, and in the analysis of complex data sets. You can also undertake a research placement tailored to the specific skills you need to enhance your employability.

The programme includes compulsory modules, which will give you a solid grounding in the subject’s key areas, and optional modules, which you’ll choose according to your specific interests.

The course builds to a substantial piece of Master’s research, which you will undertake with the supervision of active researchers in the School of Psychology. Take a look at the School of Psychology’s webpage to find a researcher who works on a topic that interests you. You’re welcome to contact our academics to discuss your research interests and find out how we can help you explore those areas before you apply.
