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
You will be taught through a mix of lectures, seminars and tutorials.
