Are you interested in the relationship between the brain and behaviour? As a neuropsychologist, you will study psychological functions such as perception, memory, language, attention, emotion and motor skills.
Disorders can be caused by a wide range of aetiologies, such as an accident, a stroke, neural degeneration (Alzheimer’s, Wernicke-Korsakov syndrome), or developmental defects (dyslexia, ADHD, autism).
What effect do brain injuries have on memory, attention or perception?
The lecturers at the Neuropsychology Master’s programme all work in clinical practice and/or conduct state-of-the-art cognitive research at Utrecht University. This integration of science and practice feeds the Master’s programme’s educational activities.
In this Master’s programme, you will learn how to work together with other behavioural and medical professionals. Our lecturers often have different specialist backgrounds, and you will experience the same multidisciplinary atmosphere in your internship as well.
The Neuropsychology Master’s programme is limited to a maximum of 65 admissions for the academic year. This means that no more than 65 candidates will be permitted to participate.
In the Neuropsychology Master’s programme, you will learn the knowledge and skills needed to assess and treat cognitive disorders resulting from brain dysfunction. You will develop into an academic professional, who can apply the latest scientific models of functions such as perception, memory and attention in clinical practice or to innovate assessment and treatment.
Depending on your previous education, after completing this Master’s programme, you can continue your studies and:
