The Clinical Neurophysiology Practice at Aston University is a level 7 postgraduate qualification designed for individuals already working in clinical neurophysiology or related services who want to progress in their role by developing a deeper understanding of the theory, methods, and practice in neurophysiology.Location: Aston University, Birmingham


You will receive an MSc degree after completing the three-year program. However, you can also exit the Clinical Neurophysiology Practice at Aston University after finalising any stage (i.e. the first year or the second year). This strategy enables you to be flexible with your level of commitment at the outset. If you withdraw from the program earlier, you can be awarded a postgraduate certification (PgCert) at the successful completion of the first year or a postgraduate diploma (PgDip) in the case you complete the second year.

The content of all modules is available by distance / blended learning, allowing you flexibility in how you study.

Learning, teaching, assessment and staff

All teaching and learning materials are hosted on Blackboard – a virtual teaching environment - as you will be taught via a blended learning approach combining individual and directed learning with scheduled seminars and workshops to complement your learning. You will be provided with a clear plan per study module with assessments aligned to the module learning outcomes. Dedicated support systems are in place from across the University, and this program benefits from a guest lecture series. Your scheduled time on campus provides you with the opportunity to discuss learning, participate in group activities, and meet with your project supervisor.

Although this will depend upon the individual,  a typical student can expect to spend around 10 hours a week throughout the duration of the course, equivalent to 500 hours of study in total.
