Learn To Assess And Treat Cognitive Behavioural Disorders

Are you interested in the relationship between the brain and behaviour? As a neuropsychologist, you will study psychological functions such as perception, memory, language, attention, emotion and motor skills.

This includes:

  • how the brain mediates these psychological functions;
  • the consequences of brain damage;
  • how to treat disorders.

Disorders can be caused by a wide range of aetiologies, such as an accident, a stroke, neural degeneration (Alzheimer’s, Wernicke-Korsakov syndrome), or developmental defects (dyslexia, ADHD, autism).

Work in multidisciplinary teams

In this Master’s programme, you will learn how to work together with other behavioural and medical professionals. Our lecturers often have different specialist backgrounds, and you will experience the same multidisciplinary atmosphere in your internship as well.

Purpose of the Programme 

In the Neuropsychology  programme at Utrecht University , you will learn the knowledge and skills needed to assess and treat cognitive disorders resulting from brain dysfunction. 

You will develop into an academic professional, who can apply the latest scientific models of functions such as perception, memory and attention in clinical practice or to innovate assessment and treatment.

Career Prospects

This Master’s programme prepares you for a position in the field of clinical neuropsychology, or a research position at a health care institution or a university.

If your ambition includes a career in academic research, you can also apply for a research trainee position (aio) and earn a PhD.

As a research trainee, you will spend four years conducting research at a university in the Netherlands or abroad. This will include writing scientific publications and teaching university courses. After earning your PhD, you may be able to continue working in a research position.
