University of Essex
This course seeks to provide our students with an advanced education in the core areas of cognitive neuropsychological research, plus knowledge of appropriate statistical methodology and neuropsychological research methods; we believe it is a good foundation for students wishing to proceed to a programme of further postgraduate study, such as a PhD, but also provides training in transferable skills necessary to meet the current requirements of many graduate employers.
Our applicants should have a 1st, 2.1 or high 2.2 degree, or equivalent, in psychology, linguistics or a related discipline. If English is not your 1st language, then we require IELTS 7.0 or equivalent.
Core modules: Fundamentals of neuroscience and neuropsychology; research methods and statistics in cognitive neuropsychology; research project. Optional modules include: Advanced cognitive development; advanced reading development and dyslexia;cognitive neuropsychology of language; critical literature review; methods in cognitive neuroscience; neuropsychology of perception and attention.
Combination of written coursework, end-of-term tests, practical and laboratory work (where appropriate) and end-of-year exams. During the summer, you will work on a dissertation or individual project included in your final grade.
