Course content

Our intercalated BSc in Neuroscience gives students already taking a medical degree the chance to achieve an additional degree in a specialist field in just one year.

This challenging and rewarding programme, led by internationally recognised researchers, is aimed at students with a keen interest in the field. We pride ourselves on training the next generation of medical neuroscientists.

You’ll study the anatomical, physiological, chemical and immunological processes of the normal nervous system, how these are altered in specific disease states, and the latest approaches to treatment. You'll develop a critical understanding of complex concepts in neuroscience – particularly those relevant to the medical field and unmet clinical needs.

Following training in research methodology and practical skills, you'll undertake an original research project – a chance to demonstrate your understanding of experimental design and data acquisition and analysis. You'll be encouraged to present your research at conferences, and have chances to co-author publications.
