We are proud to have been awarded an IoPPN Excellence Award in 2017 and 2018 for student satisfaction in the Postgraduate Taught Education Survey (PTES).

Neuroimaging is a competitive and evolving field, with few options for specialist training. At King’s you’ll learn the scientific and methodological aspects of neuroimaging, developing practical skills you’ll use in your career. 

Our latest research informs our teaching. And you’ll hear from clinical and academic experts from a range of organisations throughout the course.

Key benefits 

  • Study in our state-of-the-art Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences with access to five MRI scanners, EEG labs, and links to other organisations using PET, MEG, CT, Ultrasound and Stem Cell Imaging machines 
  • Learn from expert physicists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and psychologists 
  • Develop the practical skills of day-to-day neuroimaging techniques and their applications 
  • Awarded the IoPPN Excellence Award in 2018 for student satisfaction.


All of our lecturers are active researchers, and many are clinical staff. They specialise in a range of brain imaging and analysis techniques.  

In lectures, you’ll hear from King’s experts and guest speakers covering specialist topics. Other classes are more practical, working in labs or small workshop groups.  


You’ll also have the chance to visit other centres that provide PET, MEG and NIRS among other imaging techniques.
