Psychology, Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience

Psychology is an important subject because it relates to the whole range of human experience, from visual perception to complex social interactions. It involves the study of how people think, react and interact, and is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivations that underlie such behaviour. Our three year psychology, clinical & cognitive neuroscience degree examines the relationships between the brain and higher functions such as decision-making and consciousness, the causes, symptoms and treatments of common brain disorders such as stroke and Parkinson’s disease, and methods for studying the brain such as functional MRI. You’ll study in one of the country’s top Psychology departments with excellent ratings for both research and teaching. The course explores a broad range of key areas within psychology specialising in the final year in the study of neuroscientific approaches to understanding cognition and clinical mental health issues. Our research and teaching enhance one another, bringing students in touch with the frontiers of psychological knowledge. You’ll benefit from state of the-art equipment including an on-site MRI scanner for studying brain structure and activity, instruments for recording electrical changes in the brain (EEG), apparatus to stimulate focal areas in the brain (TMS) and a dedicated baby lab for studying the development of infants. You’ll join a close-knit department with a high staff-to-student ratio, learning in small tutorial groups. The Department of Psychology has been awarded the Athena SWAN Silver Award for efforts to promote equality and women in science, and scores consistently high satisfaction rankings in the annual National Student Survey. + You'll study in a department ranked 6th in the UK for research (The Research Excellence Framework 2014) + You'll learn about neuroscience techniques and their application in understanding human cognition and the underlying causes of clinical conditions + You'll gain a range of transferable skills to take into your future career + For those interested in continuing onto postgraduate study, as this programme is accredited by the British Psychological Society, graduates have the opportunity to gain Graduate and/or Chartered Membership of the Society, and eligibility to apply to our MSc in Forensic Psychology.
