All of our MSc programmes are research intensive, providing essential training in analytical ability, methods awareness and critical thinking, among other fundamental transferable skills.
The MSc Cognitive Neuroscience is designed to train you for further research and study, ideally for a doctoral programme in psychology, neuroscience, clinical psychology, or a related field. Our students regularly move on to PhD positions, applied and clinical psychology posts in the NHS and private sector, as well as research-based positions in industry.
As our popular programmes are consistently oversubscribed we advise early applications (prior to May each year) since we cannot accept applicants once the programmes are full. Entrants are normally required to have obtained a good first or second class UK honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK) in psychology or a related discipline (for example, cognitive neuroscience). Your degree should have included biological psychology as required by the British Psychological Society.
