About

The development of new strategies combined with the availability of large cognitve, neuroimaging and genetic data sets from healthy and clinical populations have created a need for trained individuals to use these resources for scientific advancement. The Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience programme from Brunel University London has been designed to address this need.

Overview

On this Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience programme from Brunel University London, you will develop a detailed understanding of the historical and contemporary concepts and theories underpinning our current understanding of human brain-behaviour, innovative neuroscience methods and their application to understand brain function, and the core cognitive and affective processes and associated neurology. 

You will also be equipped with specialised analytical skills that will allow you to assess and interpret neuropsychological function in healthy and clinical populations, and will be able to report research evidence as a result.

Whilst studying either one year full-time or two years part-time, you will be taught by a multidisciplinary team of experts including psychologists, psychophysiologists, neuroimaging researchers and clinical scientists. 

Careers and your future

After graduating with a Cognitive and Clinical Neurosciences MSc you may wish to undertake further postgraduate research at PhD level or pursue a professional doctoral clinical psychology training course or postgraduate qualification in psychiatry, nursing or allied disciplines.

Your skills will equip you for careers in the academic, clinical/healthcare and pharmaceutical industry setting in a variety of roles, from analytical and clinical research to sales and marketing.
