Course Summary


The aim of our Clinical Neuroscience MSc course is to give you a unique understanding of the principles underlying the clinical presentation and investigation of diseases affecting the brain. We place particular emphasis on the translation from basic science to clinical practice. Our course is suitable for students interested in neuroscience and its applications to neurological or psychiatric diseases.

Course detail

Our Clinical Neuroscience course enables scientists, trainees in neurology, psychiatry and related health-care disciplines to study the anatomical, physiological and pathological basis of symptoms and signs of brain disorders. It will provide you with in-depth knowledge and skills related to specialist research and clinical practice, systematically integrating advances in genetics, molecular neuroscience, electrophysiology and neuroimaging. You will have the opportunity to work independently within a multidisciplinary environment and at an advanced level to develop and sustain evidence-based practice, appraise and conduct clinical or preclinical research. We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials. The primary methods of assessment for this course are written examinations, coursework and practical (individual/ projects). The study time and assessment methods typically give an indication of what to expect. However, these may vary depending upon the modules.

Career prospects

Our graduates pursue clinical and non-clinical academic careers in neurology, psychiatry and allied health care professions. Many of our students also go on to study PhDs.
