Your Course Knowledge derived from neuroscience research in mental health, psychology, neurodevelopment and neurodegeneration is revolutionizing how we think about and treat mental disorders. A thorough grounding in neuroscience is fast becoming an essential step for a career in academic and clinical psychology and psychiatry and for careers in neuroscience more broadly. In response to that need, this programme is designed for students with backgrounds in psychology, medicine, pharmacology and other biomedical and neuroscience-related disciplines. It will equip students with a set of core skills in the field of clinical neuroscience including an in-depth understanding of neuroanatomy, neuroimaging and neuropsychiatry. Students will have opportunities to learn through practical hands-on experience. Teaching approaches will consist of didactic lectures, problem-based learning, seminars, workshops, journal clubs, practicals and completion of a research dissertation, as well as subject-specific training in a range of areas relevant to clinical neuroscience. Career Opportunities Graduates of this programme are likely to go on to professional training in clinical psychology, psychiatry and neuroscience-related posts in industry or to undertake further academic work at PhD level. Minimum Entry Requirements Second Class Honours NQAI Level 8 degree or equivalent in a discipline relating to neuroscience. Qualifying degrees include, but are not limited to, psychology, medicine, pharmacology and biomedical science.
