Course summary

The Human Neuroscience BSc is a three year course which introduces students to the emerging discipline of neuroscience.

We are at the beginning of what has been called ‘The New Century of the Brain’. New technologies and new understanding of biology and behaviour are driving development in this vibrant and expanding field.

The Human Neuroscience BSc places special emphasis on human aspects of the field: cognitive neuroscience, diseases and disorders of the nervous system and clinical and psychological topics. Whilst it has a human focus it has a broad multidisciplinary scope, with modules drawn from Biosciences, Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, Computer Science, Psychology, Philosophy and Medicine.

The Human Neuroscience BSC is a specialised degree course for highly qualified students that will provide instruction in cutting-edge neuroscience. The field is rapidly expanding under the influence of new technologies and collaboration across traditional disciplines. It addresses a number of social challenges including brain disease, mental health problems and maintaining health in an aging population.

Employability

This is a new degree course, so no employability statistics are available. However, Psychology, as a related degree, can give some indication of employment prospects.

Our graduates are well respected and are successful in finding careers both in professional or academic psychology and, more generally, in the professional, commercial and industrial world.

Psychology graduates are qualified to take up a wide range of careers, and many continue in psychology. Our Single Honours graduates are eligible for graduate membership of the British Psychological Society and Graduate Basis for Registration of the BPS, which is the first step towards postgraduate training and careers in clinical, forensic, educational or occupational psychology. Others work for higher degrees or join a team as research assistants. Yet others may become teachers of psychology in schools, sixth form colleges or colleges of further education.
