Anglia Ruskin is top-ranked for Psychology among modern British university's - based on its quality of research. So this is an excellent grounding to pursue PhD studentships and research careers in cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology and other clinical training programmes. You will develop skills by attending lectures, seminars and practical workshops where you'll learn how to interpret and analyse structural and functional neuroimaging (MRI and fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG) and eye-tracking data, and gain a grounding in neuropsychological assessment for clinical and research purposes.
In addition to issues specific to the cognitive and clinical neurosciences, you will learn about brain neuroanatomy and connectivity and how multiple converging approaches can strengthen the research process.
On successful completion of this course you'll be able to:
You'll be studying at our Cambridge campus, a world-renowned city for academic excellence and an invaluable location for psychological contacts. Staff at Anglia Ruskin have long term productive links with the University of Cambridge and other associated units, which have led to internships, jobs, research assistantships, collaborations and further postgraduate studies at internationally recognised institutions.
With its high employability rate for graduates and high student satisfaction rates, this flagship postgraduate pathway is an excellent choice for ambitious and successful students wishing to gain entry to the highly competitive cognitive and clinical fields.
Graduates in cognitive and clinical neuroscience typically pursue further postgraduate study, such as a research degree, or employment in a university, hospital or research unit which requires knowledge within the fields of cognitive psychology and/or the brain sciences.
Normally you would need a good Degree in Psychology or closely related discipline, e.g., Health Psychology, Joint honours Psychology, or Neuropsychology.
