The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities. Read more
The Master’s Degree in Clinical and Experimental Sciences of the Nervous System is a blended master’s degree in the field of the neurosciences with three specialities:
-Research into Neurotoxicology and Neuropsychopharmacology (research track). This speciality aims to train future specialists to research into evaluating and characterising the effects of neuroactive substances(effects of neurotoxins from environmental pollutants on living organisms, effects of medicines and abusive drugs on behaviour). The objective is to provide students with multidisciplinary training and the basic and methodological knowledge that enable them to work as researchers in the field of neurotoxicology and psychopharmacology.
-Invasive Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy (professional track). The general aim of this speciality is to learn to examine and treat patients who suffer from problems of neuromuscular pain. Other aims are to use muscle palpation to identify tense bands of muscle and the most common locations for myofascial trigger points (MTP) and to attribute a patient’s pain to the presence of MTP in the corresponding muscles thanks to a knowledge of their pain patterns and the most important semiological characteristics. One of the primary objectives is to correctly apply the main techniques for the conservative and invasive (dry puncture) treatment of MTPs: that is to say, identifying and avoiding the contraindications, risks and complications generated by the various puncture techniques.
-Neurorehabilitation (professional track). The translational objectives of this speciality are to describe the etiopathological reasons for neurological, sensory and cognitive disorders based on experimental data applied to therapeutic situations. This should enable these disorders to be treated using appropriate and well-founded rehabilitation techniques. One of the main objectives is to use such cutting-edge technologies as robotics.

Student Profile

This master’s degree is designed for two types of students: on the one hand, recent graduates who have scientific concerns and who wish to work in the field of knowledge in general and, specifically, on the central and peripheral nervous system; and, on the other, the online component of the research track is designed specifically for professionals who are already working but who would like to do a doctorate on the nervous systems to increase their professional potential.

The aim of the professional specialities is to train professionals to examine and treat patients who suffer from neuromuscular pain and give them extensive knowledge of the central and peripheral nervous system in pathological situations so that they can suggest possible therapies.

These specialities are designed for health professionals who want to acquire new knowledge and abilities to improve their daily practice on issues of the central or peripheral nervous system and who also want to have sufficient scientific training to be able to opt for a doctoral degree related to their profession so that they can lead a clinical research group.

Career Opportunities

Graduates in the Inter-university Master's Degree in Nervous System Sciences: Neurotoxicology, Neuropsychopharmacology, Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapy, Neurorehabilitation can work in:
-Biomedical research: researcher in public or private universities, involved in neuroscience and neurorehabilitation.
-Health care: physiotherapist in public or private institutions specializing in myofascial pain syndrome, rehabilitation services or orthopedic departments.
-Therapist specialised in motor, sensory and/or cognitive neurorehabilitation: rehabilitation centres for nerve damage.

Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study Abnormal and Clinical Psychology at Swansea University - 'Welsh University of the Year 2017' (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

Clinical psychology focuses on the challenges faced by people with clinical, mental or physical (neuropsychological) health conditions. The role of the clinical psychologist is to work with these individuals and attempt to improve their quality of life. The Master’s degree in Abnormal and Clinical Psychology at Swansea is designed to equip students with an advanced understanding of the theory and practice of clinical psychology in healthcare settings. The primary purpose of the Abnormal and Clinical Psychology course is to allow students to gain knowledge and experience to enhance their suitability for professional clinical training (i.e. a three year DCl in Clinical Psychology programme at a BPS accredited training centre; see http://careers.bps.org.uk/area/clinical).

Entry onto a clinical psychology doctorate training programme is extremely competitive, with candidates usually expected to have acquired training and experience beyond degree level. We have a proven track record of helping our students progress towards clinical psychology training, as well as roles in a range of other clinical mental health-related occupations. Our MSc Abnormal and Clinical Psychology alumni have also secured NHS clinical based placements, providing valuable experience for those seeking to attain Assistant Clinical Psychologist positions.

The majority of our teaching is carried out by practicing and/or qualified Clinical Psychologists and related professionals, ensuring that students are learning from those with direct experience of professional challenges.

Course modules are assessed using a range of different approaches, including written examinations, essays, presentations and clinical case studies.

Study on the course can be undertaken either full time (1 year) or part time (2 years) basis, with teaching condensed into two weekdays to more easily accommodate part-time students and for relevant experience to be gained alongside the degree. Taught modules are provided in the first two semesters, with the research project typically undertaken over the summer.

Students on the MSc Abnormal and Clinical Psychology typically include:

* UK and international psychology graduates seeking positions as Assistant Psychologists (both in the UK and abroad) as part of their journey towards becoming a BPS Chartered Clinical Psychologist.

* Psychology graduates aiming to work in related fields of applied psychology and other areas of clinical mental health.

Course detail

- Description -

The programme gives equal priority to social, epidemiological and biological research methods, emphasising the interface between these approaches, but its modular structure allows you to focus on any of the areas. The course has a practical orientation, developing skills in critical appraisal of existing research, hypothesis formulation, study design, data gathering, research management, data analysis, writing research reports and scientific publications. The programme consists of a core study module covering Study Design, Basic Epidemiology and Statistics, and several optional study units, including Social Psychiatry, Neuroimaging, Psychiatric Genetics, Advanced Statistical Methods and Brain Behaviour Interface. You will be learning from leading experts at the cutting edge of psychiatric research.

- Course purpose -

The MSc in Psychiatric Research provides advanced training in scientific research across the mental health disorders. In the first term, the course focuses on development of core skills in biological, epidemiological and social research methods, statistics and ethics. Students then develop their own areas of interest, through elective modules including neuroimaging, clinical trials, translational psychiatry, psychopharmacology, psychiatric genetics and brain-behaviour interface. These skills are applied and further developed through research dissertation projects, supervised by expert staff. Students are supported in developing their transferrable skills in preparation for the next stages in their careers.

- Course format and assessment -

Full-time students complete all required modules in one year.

- TERM 1 (September-December): Research Methods, Ethics and Statistics in Mental Health
- TERM 2 (January-March): Choice of 4 optional modules
- TERM 3 (April-September): Introductory Modules & Research Dissertation

Part-time students normally complete Research Methods, Ethics and two Optional Modules in Year 1; and Statistics, two Optional Modules, their Research Dissertation and the Introductory Modules in Year 2.

Teaching methods include lectures, computer-based practicals, workshops and tutorials.

Assessment is by computer-based or written examinations, written course-work, research project and poster presentation.
