About

The Applied Neuropsychology programme from the University of Bristol covers core content dictated by the British Psychological Society and delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practices and issues. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Overview

Around 80 per cent of the Applied Neuropsychology programme from University of Bristol content is delivered by clinicians from the National Health Service, and you will also receive regular, structured tutorials with clinicians that allow you to discuss different aspects of clinical practice and gain insight into patient pathways and evidence-based formulation. The course will deepen your knowledge and experience of clinical neuropsychology and help prepare you for professional positions (eg assistant psychologist) or further clinical training (eg Doctorate in Clinical Psychology).

You will have the opportunity to undertake independent research through the programme’s dissertation. There are some opportunities to conduct your research project with clinicians working in the NHS.

Careers

This degree delivers core skills and knowledge related to the theory and practice of clinical neuropsychology. As such, it will support those with aspirations for further clinical training, such as clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology, or a career in clinical research. Our programmes also deliver training which will enhance your opportunities to gain employment within clinical environments – especially those with a focus on clinical neuropsychology and can also assist those wishing to obtain research assistant posts with a clinical focus.

This programme also provides continuing professional development to anyone who is already working in a clinical setting and is seeking specialist training to work with patients who have neuropsychological deficits.
