Course content

The programme provides intensive training in the neurosciences as they relate to the physiologic function and behaviour of the organism. It builds on the broad research strengths of recognised scientists, particularly in basic and clinical neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, neuroendocrinology, behaviour, neurodegeneration and stress. Guest lecturers from other universities bring their specialist and advanced knowledge to the programme.

Throughout the programme, basic principles will be taught and illustrated in the context of various brain diseases, including psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. A practical and a research project will give you valuable experience in experimental neuroscience. Importantly, tutorials and presentations will also help to develop your communication skills.

The MSc will appeal to graduates looking to embark on subsequent PhD studies as well as to those with a medical training who want to diversify into research. With this master's, you could also develop a further career in industry, the health service, science communication and clinical trials coordination.

While part-time study is available, this needs to be discussed with the programme director.
