Brain Imaging (MSc) (Cognitive Neuroscience, Neuropsychology, Integrative Neuroscience, Developmental Science)


Course Description

Over the last decades, improvements in technology have led to a rapid increase in the use of neuroimaging to study human brain function non-invasively in health and disease. In particular, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electro-encephalography (EEG), magneto-encephalography (MEG) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) are now routinely used by neuroscientists to study brain-behaviour relationships. Our MSc in Brain Imaging showcases Nottingham’s multi-disciplinary environment and offers a comprehensive programme that will provide you with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to conduct high-quality neuroimaging work and neuroscience research. Translational in vivo neuroscience approaches in animal models will also be considered, and interested students will have the opportunity to receive research training in this area.

The MSc in Brain Imaging has a flexible course structure and offers four pathways with core modules alongside a choice of optional modules that permits tailor-made study. The options are:

MSc Brain Imaging (Cognitive Neuroscience)
MSc Brain Imaging (Neuropsychology)
MSc Brain Imaging (Integrative Neuroscience)
MSc Brain Imaging (Developmental Science)

Graduating from the University of Nottingham opens up a wide range of career options. Many of our students use this programme as a preparation for PhD study or other advanced degree positions. Others opt for science-related jobs. Our graduates are highly regarded by employers in private and public sector organisations because of the solid academic foundation and transferable skills they gain during their degree course such as analytical evaluation, data management, statistical analysis as well as presentation and writing skills. In the past, graduates of this programme have taken-up career opportunities in university, hospital and industry settings.

Please email for more information or visit the PG prospectus. Given the breadth of training available, the MSc is recommended to students with a background in psychology, neuroscience or a bioscience discipline as well as those with training in physics, engineering, mathematics, or computer sciences.

Upcoming Open Days: Wednesday 29 June and Wednesday 6 July (1.30-3 pm). Please contact us if you have specific questions about the programme. Phone: +44 (0)115 951 5361 or email:
