Course summary

This MRes is specifically aimed at those pursuing a professional career in neuroimaging, either in clinical practice or in neuroscience research. This multidisciplinary programme provides training in both the basic scientific and technological principles of modern neuroimaging methods, and in their application to understand neurological function and neurological disorders.

Depending on module choices, students may develop a foundational knowledge of neuroanatomy, understand the principles and main technical aspects of neuroimaging instrumentation and data acquisition, basic image processing and image analysis techniques, and gain a good working knowledge of modern methods for scientific and clinical investigation of the human nervous system using neuroimaging. Students will learn critical appraisal of scientific journal articles, use of appropriate statistical methods and adherence to the ethical and governance regulatory frameworks associated with neuroimaging research.

Who this course is for

The programme appeals particularly, but not exclusively, to those from clinical radiography or physics, biomedical engineering and neuroscience backgrounds who wish to pursue a career in neuroimaging research.

What this course will give you

The focus of this degree is neuroimaging of neurological disease. Together with our associated hospital, the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology (QSIoN) promotes research that is of direct clinical relevance to improved patient care and treatment.

With its concentration of clinical and applied scientific activity the institute is a unique national resource for postgraduate training in neurology, its associated disciplines and the basic neurosciences. During their time at Queen Square, students will have the opportunity to contribute to world-leading research and have access to cutting-edge neuroimaging facilities.

Teaching and learning

The programme is taught by lectures and workshops delivered by experts in various clinical and technical fields of neuroimaging and neuroscience research. Assessment is through written examination, coursework, presentations and dissertation.

Employability

Graduates of the programme will have developed the necessary knowledge and skills essential for a future research career in the areas of neuroradiology, imaging neuroscience or neuroimaging technology.

95.5% of Queen's Square Institute of Neurology postgraduate students are in graduate-level work or study 15 months after completion of their studies, with an average salary of £41,059. (Source Graduate Outcomes Survey published by Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA)).
