The Applied Paediatric Neuropsychology programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is suitable for outstanding psychology postgraduates who are not yet qualified as clinical or educational psychologists, but are motivated to study paediatric neuropsychology at this stage of their career.
You will develop an understanding of the techniques, methods and contemporary findings of developmental cognitive neuroscience and learn how to interpret clinical case presentations within the context of the latest scientific findings of developmental brain-behaviour relationships.
You will also gain knowledge of professional, ethical and service delivery issues in assessment and rehabilitative work.
This programme aims to equip you with the skills needed for positions such as research assistants and assistant psychologists. It also contributes to preparation for PhDs and DClinPsych or DEdPsych qualifications, which in turn can lead to clinical psychologist or neuropsychologist positions.
You can gain experience of administering and interpreting neuropsychological assessments, testing clinical groups, qualitative and quantitative data analysis (including neuroimaging and electrophysiology) and report writing. The programme gives you an excellent grounding to pursue a clinical psychology doctorate or research assistant positions.
