This programme provides the training needed in order to meet the requirements for entry to the British Psychological Society Register of Clinical Neuropsychologists. The development of this new combined Knowledge & Practice programme will be a major benefit for Clinical Psychologists in the UK looking to develop specialist knowledge and skills in the field. Our programme has an exceptionally strong reputation for the standard of training we offer, but to date this has been limited to the underpinning knowledge component of the British Psychological Society (BPS) Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN). The new combined programme adds the clinical practice component to our existing BPS accredited programme.
