This course is an expansion of our Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology that conforms to the British Psychological Society (BPS) accreditation standards for training in Clinical Neuropsychology and allows exemption from the Adult knowledge component of the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN). As this is the first year we are offering the MSc, the course is awaiting BPS accreditation. The MSc intends to deliver teaching that provides exemption from the Adult Knowledge component of the QiCN as well as supporting an equivalent pathway to the Adult Practice component of the QiCN. Subject to accreditation, the MSc will support a pathway for entry on to the Specialist Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists that is equivalent to the QiCN.

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. By partnering with a large and well-established Clinical Neuropsychology department within North Bristol NHS Trust, this course provides both clinical expertise and academic excellence. Around 80% of the taught content is delivered by clinicians practicing in the NHS, and you will learn about a range of neuropsychological disorders and pathologies as well as focusing on principles of assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.

Alongside taught content relating to the Knowledge dimension of the QiCN, this MSc also provides support as you develop your practical experience and competencies in Clinical Neuropsychology. Your clinical practice must be undertaken within your paid employment and you must secure appropriate supervision for your work when enrolled on the course. However, we offer tailored support towards developing your case portfolio, discussion of case formats and patient cases, and help in managing supervisions. This support is provided by clinicians with experience of conducting QiCN portfolio vivas.

Online lectures

All lectures are streamed live on the internet and recorded for you to replay at any point. Candidates are required to attend Bristol for four one-week teaching weeks that are spread across the duration of the course (two weeks a year if taken part-time).

Clinical neuropsychology is a specialty discipline within psychology which is focused on the associations between the brain and neuropsychological functions, including cognition, emotion and behaviour. Read more
Clinical neuropsychology is a specialty discipline within psychology which is focused on the associations between the brain and neuropsychological functions, including cognition, emotion and behaviour. Clinical neuropsychology is particularly interested in the effects of brain disorders and other clinical conditions affecting the brain on these functions.

Disorders and conditions comprise acquired or congenital neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions in children, adolescents and adults, such as ADHD, autism, stroke, brain tumor, traumatic brain injury, epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, drug abuse, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, etc.

Clinical neuropsychologists can be involved in both the assessment and treatment of people with brain disorders in various applied and often clinical settings, but also in patient related research. Methods used in the field of clinical neuropsychology are neuropsychological tests, neuroimaging and electrophysiological techniques.

With the aging population, the number of people with neuropsychological disorders increases and with this also the demand for well trained clinical neuropsychologists.
