Course summary

Programme overview

Since 2010, an academic partnership between the University of Bristol and North Bristol NHS Trust has delivered educational courses and professionally accredited training in clinical neuropsychology.

The taught content of the diploma is identical to the taught content we provide when training clinical psychologists pursuing entry to the Special Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists (SRCN). The course therefore covers core content dictated by the British Psychological Society and delivers an authentic reflection of clinical practice and issues. You will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Around 80 per cent of our taught content is delivered by clinicians from the National Health Service, and you will also receive tutorials that allow you to discuss different aspects of course content. The programme will deepen your knowledge and experience of clinical neuropsychology and help prepare you for professional positions (eg assistant psychologist) or further clinical training (eg Doctorate in Clinical Psychology).

Careers

This degree delivers core skills and knowledge related to the theory and practice of clinical neuropsychology. As such, it will support those with aspirations for further clinical training, such as clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology, or a career in clinical research. Our programmes deliver training that will enhance your opportunities to gain employment within clinical environments – especially those with a focus on clinical neuropsychology. They can assist students who are working towards a research assistant post with a clinical focus.

This programme also provides continuing professional development to anyone who is already working in a clinical setting and is seeking specialist training to work with patients who have neuropsychological deficits.
