Cognitive neuroscience is one of psychology’s most fast-moving and fundamental areas, bringing together aspects of psychology and neuroscience.
On our Cognitive Neuroscience Master’s programme you will combine research methodology training with in-depth study at the cutting edge of the field to gain understanding of the neural basis for cognition and sensorimotor skills. The course builds to a substantial piece of Master’s research, which you will undertake with the supervision of active researchers.
You’ll also benefit from a tailored research placement, through which you’ll acquire and hone further research skills.
You can complete your course in one year full-time or over two years part-time. It is ideal if you are a high calibre psychology graduate, or a graduate of a related discipline such as medicine, neuroscience, or biological sciences and are preparing for a PhD in the subject, or aim to pursue a career with a significant research element.
