FindAMasters summary

The Neuroscience MRes programme offers a fascinating exploration into the complex world of the nervous system and its impact on perception, thoughts, and behaviour. Through hands-on laboratory experience and innovative techniques, you'll gain a deep understanding of neurological function and dysfunction. Taught courses provide training in advanced tools, scientific writing, and data analysis, while the laboratory-based project allows you to delve into specific research areas. With a focus on real-world applications, such as healthy ageing and stroke recovery, this programme equips you with the skills needed for a career in neurotechnology, neuroscience, or academia. A 2:1 bachelor's degree in a relevant scientific discipline is required, with exceptions made for natural sciences or engineering graduates with biological knowledge.

About the course

Utilise exciting cutting-edge neuroscience techniques to advance our understanding of the nervous system

Our nervous system is the most complex and highly organised system within our body. This incredible network is responsible for generating our perception, thoughts, and even our behaviour. During your course, you will seek to understand how this structure operates, before using this understanding to tackle real-world challenges such as ageing, stroke recovery and spinal cord injury

Student Profile

What I love most about this course is how much freedom we are given to research and explore the topics we most enjoy. There is a real focus on your personal development and plenty of opportunities to tailor the course to what you want to get out of it. At the same time, we are pushed to come out of our comfort zones and discover novel areas of research, which has allowed me to develop across a wide range of cutting-edge subjects while continuously tailoring them to my interests. Additionally, it is particularly rewarding to feel that you are continuously picking up transferrable skills for a career in science.
