This MSc is specifically aimed at those pursuing a professional career in neuroimaging, either in clinical practice or in neuroscience research. This multidisciplinary programme provides training in both the basic scientific and technological principles of modern neuroimaging methods, and in their application to the understanding of neurological function and neurological disorders. What and how will I learn? Students will develop a good basic knowledge of neuroanatomy, understand the principles and main technical aspects of neuroimaging instrumentation and data acquisition, basic image processing and image analysis techniques, and gain a good working knowledge of modern methods for scientific and clinical investigation of the human nervous system using neuroimaging. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. The programme consists of six core courses (90 credits), a library project (30 credits) and a research project (60 credits). Core Modules Introductory Science and Methods Imaging Modalities Advanced Imaging Introduction to Neuroanatomy, Systems and Disease Pathology and Diagnostic Imaging I Pathology and Diagnostic Imaging II Dissertationreport All students undertake a library project which is assessed by a 5,000 word essay, and a laboratory research project which culminates in a 10,000 word dissertation. Options All courses are compulsory. Further details available on subject website: http:www.ion.ucl.ac.ukeducationcoursesmscimaging The programme is taught using lectures delivered by experts in various fields of neuroimaging, and is supported by a series of half-day workshopspractical demonstrations of modern neuroimaging techniques. Assessment is through written examination, workshop and research training evaluation, a 4000 word essay and the dissertation and viva. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The mission of the Institute of Neurology is to carry out high-quality research, teaching and training in basic and clinical neurosciences. Together with our associated hospital, The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the institute promotes the translation of research that is of direct clinical relevance into improved patient care and treatment. With its concentration of clinical and applied scientific activity the institute is a unique national resource for postgraduate training in neurology, its associated disciplines and the basic neurosciences. The institute has a current annual turnover of -?33 million with the majority coming from research grants. Your future career Graduates of the programme will have developed the necessary knowledge and skills essential for a future research career in the areas of neuroradiology, imaging neuroscience or neuroimaging technology. First destinations of recent graduates of the department include: Kings College Hospital: Medical Doctor, University of Zurich: Researcher, Institute of Neurology: MR1 Acquisition and Analysis Scientist, University College Hospital: Consultant Neurologist, BBC: Trainee Researcher, NHS Grampian: Neurology Registrar and UCL NHS Trust: Consultant in Audiological Medicine. Entry Requirements A first or second-class UK Bachelor's degree in an appropriate discipline or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required. Students with other qualifications may also be admitted if they possess relevant experience in a field related to neuroradiology andor medical physics. How to apply The closing date for applications is 31 July for the year of entry. Students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply? The programme is suitable for clinical graduates with some experience in neuroradiology, neurology or neurosurgery, and for non-clinical graduates with a degree in physics, engineering, radiography or related subjects, who wish to pursue a ca
