Clinical Neuroscience MSc

Loading...

The aim of our Clinical Neuroscience MSc course is to give you a unique understanding of the principles underlying the clinical presentation and investigation of diseases affecting the brain. We place particular emphasis on the translation from basic science to clinical practice. Our course is suitable for students interested in neuroscience and its applications to neurological or psychiatric diseases.

Key benefits

  • Provides a deep and detailed understanding of brain diseases and their underlying biology.
  • Emphasis on the translation from basic science to clinical practice.
  • Designed to introduce the basic scientific concepts which underlie clinical symptoms, signs and practice.
Meera

King's offered me the two things I was looking for when considering studying as a postgraduate: a world-renowned reputation and a course I was really interested in. I found the course a challenge but one in which I was supported the entire way through

Meera , Past student, Clinical Neuroscience MSc

Our Clinical Neuroscience course enables scientists, trainees in neurology, psychiatry and related health-care disciplines to study the anatomical, physiological and pathological basis of symptoms and signs of brain disorders. It will provide you with in-depth knowledge and skills related to specialist research and clinical practice, systematically integrating advances in genetics, molecular neuroscience, electrophysiology and neuroimaging. You will have the opportunity to work independently within a multidisciplinary environment and at an advanced level to develop and sustain evidence-based practice, appraise and conduct clinical or preclinical research. We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment
