    Course Summary

    Brikbeck, University of London offers an unusual MSc program in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology. It consists solely of classes which fit around your work or family schedule, which meet two days per week if taken full time, or one day per week at part time. There will also be some evening classes.

    The degree program differs from many at the Master’s level, in that it is narrowly focused. You will study fewer subjects, but will drill deeply into each one. You’ll learn the latest advances in behavioural neuropsychology, Imaging neuroscience and more, with both laboratory and clinical perspectives given a great deal of weight.

    This advanced material is delivered by some of the world’s top researchers from organisations like the Birkbeck/UCL Centre for Neuroimaging, the Brain and Behaviour Lab and the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development. The degree program is delivered by the Department of Psychological Sciences. Its teaching staff were awarded Silver status in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework.

Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market.

By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
