Course Summary

This course is accredited by National School of Healthcare Science. Our BSc in Neurophysiology will give you the expert training you need to begin a rewarding, highly skilled career working in the healthcare profession, diagnosing and treating people with neurological disorders. You will learn about the function of the nervous system and the conditions that affect it, such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, dementia, and nerve and muscle dysfunction.

As you progress, you will develop the understanding and confidence to undertake specialist procedures in neurophysiology, combining your in-depth academic work with practical clinical skills in a range of specialised healthcare settings. Neurophysiology is an exciting field that requires a high level of responsibility and problem-solving ability. As a neurophysiologist, you will frequently carry out investigations in dedicated environments or departments, such as intensive care settings and operating theatres, working with patients of all ages.

Nearly 100 % of our Healthcare Sciences students go on to work in their chosen profession within six months of graduating (Destination of Leavers Survey,2018), and there are also excellent opportunities for further study to Master’s and doctoral level as your career progresses.
