Applied Neuropsychology

The programme is designed for people aiming to become clinical psychologists, but who do not hold a British Psychological Society (BPS) accredited Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClin). The programme provides an excellent basis for those wishing to pursue a career involving work with patients with neuropsychological deficits (eg head injury, dementia, stroke, rehabilitation, etc). Alternatively, the Diploma can lead to further doctoral research. The programme would also be of interest to international students who wish to obtain specialist training in clinical neuropsychology.

Entry requirements

An upper 2nd Class Honours degree in psychology or a closely related discipline (e.g. neuroscience, clinical psychology). Some clinical experience is preferable, though not essential.
