Course summary


The overall aim of the programme is to develop a holistic understanding of the aetiology and clinical management of neurodevelopmental disorders across the lifespan, with a focus on the adult population. We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment.

Course detail

On this course, you’ll develop your understanding of 'neurotypical' brain development. This will help you understand the biological basis of neurodevelopmental disorders and the impact they have. At the same time, we’ll look at areas like intellectual disability and research methods. A real highlight of this course is learning how research can be applied to practice. To help you understand the latest advances in the field, we’ll discuss different brain imaging methods and basic genetics. And, for your research project, we’ll challenge you to look at a current issue in more detail. Many students on this course join us after completing their BSc – this is normally in psychology or another science. But, if you’re already working in the field, studying this course part time is a great opportunity to learn from experts and arm yourself with expertise for your role. If you’ve come straight from your degree, you might not have any practical experience yet. But, with a placement as part of the course, we can guarantee that you’ll spend time in a clinic that specifically deals with neurodevelopmental disorders. King’s is a joint lead on Autism Innovative Medicine Studies-2-Trials (AIMS-2-Trials), the world’s largest autism grant. As a student at King’s, you’ll work alongside the experts – and you might even decide to use the data for your dissertation project. By the end of the course, you’ll have an expert understanding of the theory, evidence, and practice behind neurodevelopmental disorders. We’ll also make sure you’re confident carrying out research that could move the field forward.

Teaching and assessment

You will be taught through a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials. The primary methods of assessment for this course are written examinations, coursework and practical work. The study time and assessment methods typically give an indication of what to expect. However, these may vary depending upon the modules.

Career prospects

Our graduates are expected to further their academic career (e.g. apply for a PhD) or enter a career in areas such as clinical psychology, social work, occupational therapy or nursing with expertise in neurodevelopmental disorders.
