Course Summary

The Clinical Paediatric Neuropsychology MSc is currently the only paediatric programme in the UK that is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and students who successfully complete the programme are deemed to have completed the academic components of the BPS professional Qualification in Clinical Paediatric Neuropsychology (QiCN). You will develop an understanding of the techniques, methods and contemporary findings in the field. You will be trained to interpret clinical case presentations within the context of current scientific findings of developmental brain-behaviour relationships and gain knowledge of the major professional, ethical and service delivery issues in assessment and rehabilitative work. This programme covers all key areas of the syllabus recommended by the BPS Division of Neuropsychology and draws on the wealth of specialist expertise in neuropsychology within Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) and other related neuroscience and psychology departments within UCL. We also invite many external speakers who are international experts within their area of specialism. The British Psychological Society (BPS) views the QiCN as the 'gold standard' for practitioners in clinical neuropsychology and considers that graduates of this MSc have successfully completed the academic components (knowledge and research) of the QiCN. This degree is also available as a PG Diploma with fees set accordingly.
