Support

The dedicated team at NeuroMinds Ltd will be available to support you throughout your MA. You will be allocated a supervisor who will read drafts of your assignments and give you feedback. Your Trainers will have existing experience writing and researching at an academic level, and you will also be connected with others students studying for the same degree so you can help and support each other. You will be expected to participate in action learning sets and reflect on feedback from your peers.
Because we keep cohort numbers small, we know all our students by name and are able to provide the right advice for you as an individual. Support on this programme is only an e-mail or phone call away.
