Study a course in neuroscience at the University of Sheffield

We pride ourselves on collaboration between clinicians and non-clinicians, and many of our courses include teaching from practising clinicians as well as research active academics.

We also offer a part-time distance-learning course in Neuroscience and Neurodegeneration, so you can study for a higher degree without having to leave your current post.

We have been awarded the Queen's Anniversary Prize for innovation in neuroscience. This prize is the highest national honour that recognises outstanding work by UK universities and colleges that demonstrate quality and innovation in their research.

By studying one of our neuroscience courses, you will have the opportunity to train at the Sheffield Institute for Translational Neuroscience (SITraN), one of the world-leading centres for research into Motor Neurone Disease, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease.

From basic neuroscience research to novel therapies and clinical trials - our aim is to improve the lives of patients with neurodegenerative disorders and their families worldwide.

The University of Sheffield’s Neuroscience Institute also brings together internationally recognised expertise in medicine, science and engineering to improve the lives of patients and families affected by neurological, sensory and developmental disorders.

Our department of neuroscience is a world-leading centre for research into neurodegenerative diseases.

Our research-led, patient-focused approach will help you to become the clinician or researcher you aspire to be. The impactful, high-quality research that we undertake influences how we teach across all of our postgraduate courses.

Our talented teams are working to advance fundamental neuroscience and harness new discoveries so that we can understand how the brain and nervous system function in health and disease.

All of our courses are designed to help you develop your career and we offer a broad range of campus-based and online courses - further information on our neuroscience postgraduate courses can be found here.
