The Education (Neuroscience and Education) programme offered by the University of Bristol is is for those who wish to enrich their educational thinking and practice with insights about typical and atypical learning from the sciences of the mind and brain.
The programme also provides an excellent foundation for further research studies, such as a PhD, that involves the ideas and methods of cognitive neuroscience in areas related to education and learning.
You will engage with the latest research literature and debates, including the most recent findings arising from the sciences of mind and brain in areas relevant to education (such as reading, attention, mathematics, language and learning disorders, autism, adolescent development, technology and creativity, along with many other areas). You will become an active researcher who draws on findings from neuroscience, psychology, genetics, and educational research in order to carry out your own small-scale experiments and research studies, leading to the major work of your dissertation.
We offer academic and personal development opportunities to equip you for the intellectual, social and personal challenges you will encounter during your career.
Our overarching goal is to enable our education graduates to display the following characteristics:
- equipped to demonstrate impact, excellence and distinctiveness in your chosen field;
