    Applied cognitive neuroscience combines techniques and skills including psychometric testing, electroencephalogram (EEG) and imaging techniques - for application to neuropathological and healthy groups in clinical, academic or biomedical settings. Neuropathological groups may include people with head injures, Parkinson´s disease and dementia.

    This course is ideal if you

    * are a graduate with an applied or pure science degree including psychology and nursing, and want to pursue a research, clinical or biomedical career in neuroscience
    * work in a related area and wish to formalise and develop your skills, knowledge and expertise as part of continuing professional development
    * want to open alternative career pathways
    * are an EU or international student with the appropriate background and qualifications

    It gives you the knowledge and skills to evaluate cognitive and brain function and dysfunction in healthy and neuropathological groups. You learn to understand the important ethical issues involved in neuroscientific research targeted at neuropathological and healthy groups, such as drug development for commercial gain.

    We also build your research skills enabling you to work as an independent researcher in this area.

    Our specialist learning resources include psychometric measures for assessing cognitive function and 3D model brains for understanding neuroanatomy.

    You learn to use specialist equipment including

    * EEG
    * transcranial magnetic stimulation
    * structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    * functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
    * visuo-psychophysics equipment.

    Some lectures are taught by guest tutors including clinical psychologists and neuroimaging experts.

    You are automatically affiliated with our Brain, Behaviour and Cognition Research Group, which

    * delivers targeted neuroscience workshops
    * organises subject specific presentations
    * has regular research meetings
    * has strong collaborative links with other institutions

    This course gives you the skills to work with diverse neuropathological groups in clinical settings.

    You learn to assess and evaluate broad areas of cognitive function and dysfunction in patient groups including people with Parkinson´s disease, head injury, dementia, and other neuropathological conditions.

    We give you a thorough foundation in the methods of neuroscience used in academic and clinical contexts including

    * functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
    * structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    * electroencephalogram (EEG)
    * Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
    * eye tracking techniques
    * visual psychophysics.

    You can also complete further cognitive neuroscience postgraduate academic work.

    Core modules

    To graduate with an MSc you complete

    * neursopsychopharmacology
    * neuron to neuropathology
    * cognitive neuroscience methods
    * business and bioethics
    * perception and cognition
    * philosophical debates in neuroscience
    * research dissertation

    You also complete one of the following research methods modules depending on your educational background and statistical knowledge across all the awards

    * advanced statistical design
    * fundamentals of design and statistics

    To graduate with a postgraduate certificate, you complete one core module and two or more optional modules. To graduate with a postgraduate diploma, you complete all the modules apart from the dissertation.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    program_requirements

    Typically you need one from * a second class honours degree or above in psychology * a relevant first degree * appropriate practical or work-based experienceInternational students must also have an IELTS score of 7.0. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 7 CAE score: (read more) Cambridge English: Advanced (CAE) is part of the Cambridge English suite and is targeted at a high level (IETLS 6.5-8.0). It is an international English language exam set at the right level for academic and professional success. Developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment - part of the University of Cambridge - it helps you stand out from the crowd as a high achiever. 75 (Grade B) IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
