Course content

As a student on our MRes programme you’ll be taught by internationally-recognised experts in various fields of neuroscience. As active researchers, we undertake wide range of basic and pre-clinical research and this first hand research experience will inform and drive your learning. You will enjoy specialist talks from external expert speakers, hear the latest findings at the Faculty research seminar series and ultimately integrate into the research culture through your extended research project which spans two semesters.

The programme has a strong focus on employability skills. You will gain hands-on experience of a range of cutting-edge laboratory skills, learn to effectively plan and manage a successful research project, and become fully trained in lab safety and risk assessment so that you can hit the ground running when you begin your project.

Whether your aspirations are to undertake a PhD towards a career in research, gain lab experience to prepare you for work in industry, develop postgraduate-level transferrable skills or whether you just want to focus on a fast-faced and exciting area of bioscience, our MRes Neuroscience course is the programme for you!
