The world's largest faculty of psychology”
Incorporate the specific knowledge of neuropsychological research to your training with this complete Postgraduate Diploma"
The work in neuropsychology is complex. It covers a broad spectrum of intervention that requires the professional to have very specific training in the various branches of brain development. This discipline, deeply linked to neurology and the physiological study of the brain, is affected by the changes that the evolution of knowledge in this scientific branch achieves. For professionals, this means an intense challenge of permanent updating that allows them to be at the forefront in terms of the approach, intervention and follow-up of the cases that may arise in their classrooms.
Throughout this program, the student will review all the current approaches to the work practiced by neuropsychologists with regard to the different challenges posed by their profession. A high-level step that will become a process of improvement, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level.
This challenge is one of TECH's social commitments: to help highly qualified professionals to specialize and develop their personal, social and work skills during the course of their training.
We will not only take you through the theoretical knowledge we offer, but we will introduce you to another way of studying and learning, one which simpler, more organic, and efficient. We will work to keep you motivated and to create in you a passion for learning. We will encourage you to think and develop critical thinking.
A program created for professionals who aspire for excellence, and that will enable you to acquire new skills and strategies easily and effectively"

The foundations of neuroscience, developed in a practical way, so that you can put them into practice immediately"
Our teaching staff is made up of working professionals. In this way we ensure that we provide you with the up-to-date training we are aiming for. A multidisciplinary team of professors with training and experience in different environments, who will develop the theoretical knowledge in an efficient way, but, above all, will bring their practical knowledge derived from their own experience to the program: one of the differential qualities of this Postgraduate Diploma.
This mastery of the subject is complemented by the effectiveness of the methodological design of this Postgraduate Diploma. Developed by a multidisciplinary team of e-learning experts, it integrates the latest advances in educational technology. In this way, you will be able to study with a range of comfortable and versatile multimedia tools that will give you the operability you need in your specialization.
The design of this program is based on Problem-Based Learning: an approach that conceives learning as a highly practical process. To achieve this remotely, telepractice will be used: with the help of an innovative system of interactive videos, and learning from an expert you will be able to acquire the knowledge as if you were facing the case you are learning at that moment. A concept that will make it possible to integrate and fix learning in a more realistic and permanent way.
Learn the methodology of neuropsychological research with us and gain access to a much more enriching area of work”
Different ways of learning require different ways of teaching. Knowing them is the key to professional success”
The contents of this program have been developed by the different teachers on this program with a clear purpose: to ensure that our students acquire each and every one of the necessary skills to become true experts in this field.
