Course content

The classes that make up this course have been carefully developed to offer theory, knowledge and practical skills across the areas of clinical, health and neuropsychology, in addition to providing training in research methods.

The knowledge and skills you'll develop will help you if you're aiming to take a PhD in a clinical or health based area, or want to become a Practitioner Psychologist.

You can study full-time over one year or part-time over two years. Single modules can be taken as part of Continuing Professional Development.

Please note although this MSc has a duration of one year, the final assessment deadline you will have (dissertation submission) will be at the end of July. This is to ensure time for marking dissertations and for the external examiner to review all assignments (including the dissertations), prior to the exam board which takes place at the very beginning of September (and within which the marks are ratified). This procedure is typical of MSc courses in the UK.
