Neurophysiology

The programme provides existing practitioners with the skills and knowledge to become more autonomous in their roles and have the ability to improve and evaluate services for patients - to become an advanced practitioner.

You have the option of taking each of the three stages of this course in order (PgCert, PgDip then MSc), or it is possible to exit the course at any of the stages, enabling you to be flexible with your level of commitment at the outset.

The PgCert in Neurophysiology is a postgraduate training programme for the NHS Accredited Specialist Scientific Practice Programme (ASSP). This provides the neurophysiology workforce with the ability to meet specific workforce needs in nerve conduction and EMG as well as paediatric and intensive care EEG.

Assessment methods

All teaching and learning materials are hosted on Blackboard as this is a blended learning course. Students are on campus for 3 weeks in the first term of the first year then at Aston 3 days a term for the remainder of the course.

The majority of the teaching and learning material is delivered via the virtual learning environment (Blackboard 9). Students are provided with a study guide for modules which ensures they are aware of what material needs covering when. The mandatory modules are mostly assessed via coursework so students are able to benchmark their abilities early on and to develop their skills in managing their learning.

Students are on campus for short periods each term when they have the opportunity to participate in group activities, tutorials, skills laboratories and seminars.
