Cognitive rehabilitation is a rapidly emerging field that integrates research and clinical practice within the field of cognitive neuropsychology and neuroscience and applies it to the development and evaluation of evidence-based assessment and intervention. This course has been carefully designed to provide graduates from psychology, the life sciences and allied health professions with the theoretical knowledge and practical experience to develop their clinical skills, academic rigor and research expertise. The interdisciplinary nature of the course will provide you with a strong background in brain anatomy and function, clinical neuroscience, cognitive neuropsychology and cognitive rehabilitation ensuring that you have training and practice in assessment, targeted rehabilitation and the ethical and professional aspects of working in a clinical setting. Course content: The focus on professional learning is supported with a work experience module that offers you the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a clinical setting. An independent research project provides you with a chance to develop your specific areas of interest with the supervision of a member of staff with relevant clinical, academic and research expertise.

Associated careers: This course is particularly suited to pursuing a career in a clinical setting, preparation for further psychology training (eg clinical psychology) or clinical research or meeting the requirements for appointment or promotion with certain employers. The course also develops generic higher education and career management skills that would be of use in a wide range of careers.
