Clinical Physiology (Neurophysiology)

Neurophysiologists diagnose and monitor disorders of the brain and nervous system, from epilepsy, strokes, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson's disease right down to problems with the tiniest nerves. Our programme will provide you with both in-depth practical experience and comprehensive, up- to-date theoretical knowledge. Our students build their knowledge of modern technologies used in diagnostics and research to solve complex problems related to disease investigation required to progress their own research. Students develop practical skills to carry out experimental research and the critical evaluation and analysis skills required for literature reviews; assessing essential facts, concepts, principles and theories; legal requirements for human experiments and ethical issues relating to research with human subjects and human tissue relevant to your research.

Entry requirements

A good Honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in a health or science based subject. International entry requirements: The equivalent of the above from a recognised overseas university. Applicants must normally be a clinical physiologyst but those from other healthcare professions (e.g. registered nurse, clinical exercise physiologist, physiotherapist and medical practitioners) are also welcomed. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of 3 years' work experience in clinical physiology. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level. English language requirements: Competence in English language and we normally require grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English language requirements for international students are IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all 4 components) or TOEFL internet based 87 (with at least 21 in listening and writing, 22 in speaking and 23 in reading). We also offer a pre-sessional course that ranges from 5-17 weeks, depending on your level of English.
