Improvements in brain imaging techniques have led to a higher demand for Neuropsychologists. To become a Neuropsychologist you have to go through either a Clinical or Educational route, which are both highly competitive areas. Therefore, it is essential to show postgraduate selectors your work experience skills as well as your degree qualifications. Work experience is also an excellent way to apply your knowledge of the course to the real world!
