The MSc in Cognitive Neuropsychology is a research-oriented degree that provides strong theoretical background, as well as advanced research skills, supporting students to further pursue a research career or a PhD in the fast-developing fields of Neuropsychology-Neuroscience. The programme focuses on the understanding of behavioural and cognitive deficits that follow brain damage in clinical populations, such as individuals with neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. different types of dementia and multiple sclerosis), epilepsy, tumor, stroke, traumatic brain injury, etc., as well as children with neurodevelopmental conditions. Besides an advanced coverage of core areas in Neuropsychology – Neuroscience, the programme includes modules focusing on themes in the frontiers of scientific research (e.g. Applied Neuroscience). Students also receive training in specialized neuropsychological assessment procedures and neurophysiological data processing. The programme offers its graduates the opportunity to get a postgraduate British University degree and acquire advanced research skills, in the context of a Dissertation project in Neuropsychology – Neuroscience that runs in parallel to the taught programme, under the supervision of specialized staff.


 The programme is open to bachelors’ graduates from any discipline.

The title of Master of Science in Cognitive Neuropsychology is awarded directly from the University of York.

Our MSc in Cognitive Neuropsychology responds to the increased demand for research oriented neuropsychologists in the EU counties, and particularly in South East Europe. Importantly, this program helps students develop general critical, research, analytic and problem-solving skills that can be applied in a wide range of settings.

Graduates with an MSc in Cognitive Neuropsychology may pursue careers and become employed in various research settings or pursue further studies in Clinical Psychology/Neuropsychology. The MSc in Cognitive Neuropsychology provides the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary environments, either research-oriented, or industry-oriented, such as Neuromarketing research. Also our MSc can be a stepping stone to pursue a PhD in Neuropsychology.
