MSc Forensic Dentistry at the University of Dundee

The University of Dundee’s Forensic Dentistry course addresses aspects of forensic dentistry which are the subject of expert testimony in courts and have the most relevance to forensic dentistry internationally. Students get the opportunity to work in a mortuary, assisting with dental identifications. They also attend real autopsies with pathologists, which make them aware of the complexity involved in the examination of a person's body after death.

BSc Psychology with Neuropsychology at Bangor University

Psychology with Neuropsychology will develop your understanding of the structure of the human brain, and how it functions to affect perception, thought, emotion, language and behaviour. For example in the first year you’ll take part in human anatomy practical with the life changing experience of working with real human brains. You will analyse what happens when the brain is damaged or impaired, as for example in head injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s disease. You will study not only the effects of these conditions, but also how such patients can be helped through rehabilitation. You can watch video of the Human Brain anatomy module (as well as modules involving Zombie’s and Marathons!) on Bangor University's website.

As a very large school of Psychology Bangor are also able to offer you a large range of optional modules so you can focus on your areas of interest. They also have fantastic research facilities including a brand-new MRI Scanner, ERP & ECG facilities, Faraday cages and eye tracking so you’ll leave university having used cutting edge facilities to carry out your research. All that delivers a student satisfaction ranking of 5th in the UK (NSS 2019).
