Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust has delivered educational courses and professionally accredited training in Clinical Neuropsychology.

The MSc in Applied Neuropsychology is available to anyone holding a minimum 2.1 degree (or international equivalent) in psychology or a related discipline, either from the UK or abroad. The taught content of the MSc is identical to the taught content we provide when training clinical psychologists pursuing entrance to the Special Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists. The course therefore covers core content dictated by the British Psychological Society and delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practices and issues. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Study Details:

MSc 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time

Module Details:

The degree consists of six units (total of 120 credits) and a 60-credit dissertation. Four of the six units are taught via lectures (total of 100 credits). A further unit (10 credits) exposes students to a range of clinical case reports and each student is allocated a case for further analysis leading to submission of an assessed case report (3000 words) and delivery of a presentation of that case. In the sixth unit (10 credits), students are asked to explore important peer-reviewed papers and engage in critical discussion. Each critical discussion will be preceded by a student presentation which provides a critical summary of a particular paper.

All lectures must be attended in person, but they are also recorded for you to replay at any point.
