Course content

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. 

You’ll have the opportunity to apply for a placement working with older adults suffering the effects of traumatic brain damage or neurological disease, or with children or young people with neurodevelopmental conditions. These placements, which take place in either specialist education or neurological care and rehabilitation facilites, give you the opportunity to gain valuable clinical 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.

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.

Placements

Through our connections with health care and educational organisations in Poole and Bournemouth, you will have the opportunity to apply for an otpional placement, working with older adults with brain injury or neurological disease, or with children, adolescents or adults with neurodevelopmental conditions.

It should be remembered at all times that students on placements will be fully committed members of a real clinical or educational team. The highest standards of professional conduct must be upheld at all times, and students are expected to be dedicated, conscientious and considerate of their role in the lives of vulnerable people.

We’re always on the lookout for new and exciting placement opportunities for students, so the full range we can offer will be revealed to you when you arrive. Below, however, you can see further information about some of our current placement providers.
