Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging
A 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree in science. Relevant subjects would include primarily Psychology and Health Sciences; other backgrounds which might be appropriate include Computer Sciences, Medicine or Nursing. You should have a keen interest in the subject, and a willingness to engage in wide reading around the topic areas. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) will be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made. Students whose 1st language is not English must provide evidence of proficiency in the English language.
The course consists of four taught modules and a research dissertation. Assessment is through coursework including essays, oral presentations, case studies, poster presentations, field research, etc. Full-time students normally attend two intensive classes each week, part-time students attend one class per week; these sessions are supported by time for wider reading, seminar preparation and assignment completion.
