Clinical neuropsychiatry considers mental disorders from a neurological standpoint. It is an exciting and developing area of study.

Our new MSc in Clinical Neuropsychiatry will allow students to develop the skills and knowledge required to specialise in neuropsychiatry as a clinician or academic. We welcome biomedical and psychology graduates, as well as psychiatrists, neurologists, psychologists and other health professionals onto the course. 

The course information sheet is a printable version of the information on this web page, which you can download here.
