There’s a Masters course on Educational Neuroscience run jointly by Birkbeck and UCL, either 1 year full-time or 2 years part-time:
Funded PhD studentships on Educational Neuroscience are also available through the Bloomsbury Doctoral Training Centre:http://bloomsburydtc.ac.uk/academic-clusters/psychology/
The University of London Centre for Educational Neuroscience also runs 1-day workshops giving an introduction to the field. One is running on Saturday 9th May:http://store.ioe.ac.uk/browse/extra_info.asp?compid=1&modid=5&catid=37&prodid=425
