An honours degree (minimum 2:1) or overseas equivalent in a science subject e.g. physics, neuroscience, maths, engineering, psychology, medicine or computer science. Each case will be judged on an individual basis. All applicants must also submit a separate personal statement (not over 300 words) detailing their reasons for applying and how this programme fits in with their long term career plans.
Months of entry
The MSc is aimed at graduates with a scientific training (e.g. in physics, computer science, mathematics, medicine, psychology, neuroscience, pharmacology, engineering etc) interested in a career where brain imaging forms a major focus.
Designed specifically to provide the student with the skills to carry out cognitive brain imaging work in healthy individuals and in patient populations. Issues relating to the optimisation of fMRI and EEG data acquisition and analysis will be explored with focus on the cross-talk between the physics of the scanning environment, the psychology of the experimental design and the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of the human brain.
