Course content

The MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience is aimed at home and international students who are seeking to build on their undergraduate qualifications to develop their project management skills and theoretical knowledge for a career in research or related disciplines. In addition, the course is aimed at those from closely related science backgrounds, to build up a knowledge and practical experience of cognitive neuroscience and psychology, before embarking on a psychology related career.

As the theoretical background to, and techniques of, cognitive neuroscience are rarely available to students at undergraduate level, the main objective of this MSc is to provide you with detailed historical, philosophical, theoretical and practical knowledge of a broad range of cognitive neuroscience techniques. This wide-ranging knowledge will make you an extremely strong candidate for future research positions, and provides you with an ability to develop broad research programmes, utilising a range of techniques, as an independent researcher.
