We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Neuroscience involve advanced study of human nerve cells and the nervous system, exploring their anatomy, physiology, and chemical and functional behaviour
Related postgraduate specialisms include Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neuroscience. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Biology or Medicine.
Topics available to study within this field are very broad, with many courses taking an interdisciplinary approach that combines methodologies from subjects like Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Medicine.
Training usually includes practical investigations such as experiment design, lab work and imaging techniques. The purpose of these tasks is to help you understand the role of neurons in neural circuits, as well as the molecular biology and chemical composition of the different cells which make up the nervous system.
You may wish to specialise in a particular area of Neuroscience for your future career, such as the evolution of the nervous system, its functional and structural processes, or its computational and psychosocial significance.
Job possibilities include roles in clinical medicine and the treatment of neural diseases, the design and implementation of new investigative technology, research roles and social care.

The Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences (CDBS) carries out research at molecular, cellular, systems and behavioural levels to understand fundamental mechanisms and pathways relevant to brain and body function in health and disease. Read more
The MSc by Research in Integrative Neuroscience is a one-year, full-time research programme covering all levels of modern neuroscience, which makes it an ideal programme to prepare you for a PhD. Read more
The Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) offers a large number of Master's programmes(overseen by our Graduate School of Science and Engineering).
In 2018, the University of Bordeaux created its “Graduate Research School”, in order to coordinate, strengthen and promote doctoral studies along with partner research organizations.
Our research seeks to understand how the nervous system, the most complex and highly organised part of the body, is able to generate perception, thoughts and behaviour. We then apply this understanding to seek solutions to real-world problems, like promoting healthy ageing, stroke recovery, spinal cord injury repair.
