Study Details

MSc 1 year Full-time

This MSc is provided jointly by the Department of Psychology and the York Neuroimaging Centre (YNiC), and recruits contributing faculty from other university departments such as The Hull-York Medical School.

The course has been developed around training and research using neuroimaging techniques, and the experimental and analytical methods on which they depend. Students are introduced the principles of neuroimaging, gaining hands on experience in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), magnetoencephalography (MEG), eletroencephalography (EEG) or transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), learning how to design, analyze and evaluate neuroimaging experiments, and how such experiments are contributing to our understanding of the brain mechanisms underpining cognition and behaviour.

Entry Requirements

A degree or equivalent qualification, normally in Psychology, Neuroscience, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering or a related numerate discipline, and normally at the level of an upper second class honours award. Admissions decisions are made primarily on the basis of information provided on the graduate application form including whether the applicant has familiarity with issues in experimental psychology and its applications; applicants are not normally interviewed.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to.
