Taught Programmes - Clinical/Applied programmes

  • MSc in Applied Neuropsychology
  • We collaborate with the Department of Neuropsychology at the North Bristol NHS Trust to provide you with training in clinical and theoretical neuropsychology. A substantial proportion of the course is taught by NHS clinicians, which results in an authentic reflection of clinical practices and issues. The exact same taught content is also provided to qualified Clinical Psychologists wishing to specialise in Clinical Neuropsychology. This degree also includes weekly tutorials with qualified Clinical Psychologists and Neuropsychologists.
    One year full-time, two years part-time
  • PG Diploma in Applied Neuropsychology
  • Provides the same taught content as our Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology and is aimed at people seeking to further their understanding in clinical neuropsychology or wishing to engage in continued professional development while working in a clinical setting. 80% of the Taught content is provided by experienced Clinicians working in the National Health Service. This programme is also available as a full distance learning course.
    One year full-time, two years part-time
  • MSc Clinical Neuropsychology
  • Like our Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology, this MSc delivers the Knowledge Dimension of the adult Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology to trained Clinical Psychologists. However, this MSc also delivers the Adult Practice Dimension of the British Psychological Society Division of Neuropsychology, providing a gateway to entry onto the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists as equivalent to the QiCN. It offers support towards the submission of your QiCN case portfolio. In a conventional MSc there is a research project. On this degree, the research component is replaced by training towards the Adult Practice Dimension.
