Course summary

This course within the Department of Psychology focuses on the normal and abnormal changes that occur in the human brain from childhood through to adulthood through to old age.

Key topics include rare cognitive neuropsychological disorders and relatively common clinical and neurodegenerative disorders. The course is taught by staff members who conduct cutting-edge research in these fields and by professionals in educational psychology, clinical psychology and neuropsychology.

Through the study of normal and abnormal patterns of development across the lifespan, this course provides a fascinating programme of study if you’re wishing to become a researcher in this area and/or are seeking further professional development by gaining a unique and relevant qualification in an increasingly difficult job market.

As a graduate, you will be prepared to undertake further training for a variety of roles, working in contexts such as the NHS (hospital and community), the private/independent health care sector (nursing homes and private hospitals), education, and academic research.

You’ll have the opportunity to apply for a highly-competitive placement. These placements, which take place in either specialist education or clinical settings, give you the opportunity to gain valuable experience and learn from professionals working in these fields. If you’re more interested in research, internal placements working with a member of staff in the Psychology Research Group will be offered as part of the course. Research placements offer invaluable experience for those wanting to go on to do PhD-level research.

Careers

This course emphasises core practical skills, which will give you extra marketability in a competitive professional arena, and provide you with a route into a successful and rewarding career.
