Our Neuroscience MSc course will provide you with multidisciplinary training in a range of neuroscience topics, particularly those relevant to psychiatry and neurology. It seeks to equip graduates from a wide range of backgrounds for the next stage of their career, which may be either further full-time study in a neuroscience-related academic research environment, or employment in an academic, clinical or pharmaceutical organisation. 

The course information sheet is a printable version of the information on this web page, which you can download here.

 Key benefits

  • Appeals to students from a variety of backgrounds.
  • Offers specialised graduate training in several neuroscience subject areas, both clinical and non-clinical.
  • Aims to equip all graduates for the next stage of their career, usually through further full-time study in basic neuroscience in an academic research environment or in a taught clinical programme, employment in an academic, clinical or pharmaceutical organisation. Some students have entered scientific publishing.

Please note that the two year part-time programme runs on alternate years. The next intake will be September 2020. 

Description

The Neuroscience MSc inspires the next generation of neuroscientists. The course brings together home and international Students from various academic backgrounds. Our vision is to provide Students with multidisciplinary training in a broad range of neuroscience topics, particularly those relating to psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience and neurology. We believe that our Teaching and Research goals can best be achieved through our Students, Scientists and Clinicians working together on common problems. This approach transforms Students' theoretical and practical knowledge of the neurosciences, and provides them with the applied and professional skills they need for their future careers. In short, our objective is to provide students with a good foundation for life.

The Programme provides:

  • Students with core teaching and learning in a wide range of neuroscience domains (3 fundamental modules) and a choice of a specialised pathway (optional modules).
  • Multidisciplinary training in neuroscience topics ranging from the molecular to the behavioural. Modules are taught using a variety of teaching methods ranging from didactic instruction through to student-led seminar/tutorial work.
  • Rich research experience (research module) in high quality research environments.
  • Skills, career and professional development in topics relevant to biomedical research. This is done through various exercises including presentation of original research data in both poster and scientific paper formats.
  • Clinicians with specialised supplementary training.
  • A specialised knowledge of a broad range of neuroscience topics relevant to mental illness, psychology and neurology.
  • Students with the ability to conduct high quality research and to present their findings to different audiences.

Assessment 

You are assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations and may typically expect assessment by:

Full-time (one year)

Examination (46.7%) | Coursework (20%) | Practical (33.3%)

Part time (two years) 

Year 1 : Examination (60%) | Coursework (40%) | Practical (0%)

Year 2: Examination (3.3%) | Coursework (0%) | Practical (66.6%)

The study time and assessment methods detailed above are typical and give you a good indication of what to expect. However, they may change if the course modules change. 

Career prospects

This course provides excellent training for students who wish to pursue a broad range of careers including an academic or research career, or those who wish to enter medical school, the pharmaceutical industry, or train as clinical psychologists, or work as scientific writers.
