The MA in Clinical Neuropsychology 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 Neuropscyhology – Neuroscience, the programme includes units focusing on themes in the frontiers of scientific research (e.g. the Neuroscience of Arts unit). Students are also equipped with the skills and knowledge required to efficiently assess individuals, accurately diagnose their conditions and appropriately develop rehabilitation programmes that can improve their cognitive functioning and quality of life. In doing so, students receive training in specialized neuropsychological assessment procedures and are provided with opportunities to become involved in the use of state-of- art equipment for "brain training" and the measurement of physiological responses in our Neuroscience Laboratory. The programme offers its graduates the opportunity to get a postgraduate British University degree and acquire hands-on experience in Clinical Neuropsychology in the context of a structured Practicum, supervised by specialised staff.
The programme is open to candidates with a degree in psychology as well as graduates and professionals from health-related disciplines.
