[[Academic cooperation]] Collaboration with six partner universities: ››Canada: Université Laval ››France: University of Bordeaux ››Germany: UMG Universitätsmedizin Göttingen Charité -Universitätsmedizin Berlin ››Netherlands: Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam ››Portugal: Universidade de Coimbra Four associated members: ››Belgium: Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) ››France: Fluofarma, Regional Council of Aquitaine ››Netherlands: Synaptologics BV
[[Program outline]] The Neurasmus program is a full-time Neuroscience study program offering a unique interdisciplinary and integrated approach of normal brain functions and diseases. It strongly emphasizes training in cutting-edge techniques in all major topics of brain research, from neurogenetics and neurogenomics, cellular and molecular neurobiology, neurophysiology, neurophotonics, physiology and pathophysiology of neural plasticity, to medical neurosciences.
The Neurasmus program is an Erasmus Mundus Master course developed under Action 1.
Action 1 fosters cooperation between higher education institutions and academic staff in Europe and Third Countries with a view to creating poles of excellence and providing highly trained human resources.
Joint programs of outstanding academic quality are designed and implemented by a consortium of European universities from at least three different countries. Consortia may also include universities from other parts of the world.
Programs include obligatory study and research periods, in at least two universities, and award recognized double or multiple degrees.
At the application stage, students choose the main track they want to go through, which defines first year mobility. ››Track 1: Neurobiology and Neurogenetics (120 ECTS) ››Track 2: Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology (120 ECTS) ››Track 3: Neurophysiology (150 ECTS) ››Track 4: Neurobiology and Neuropathology (120 ECTS) ››Track 5: Neuroimaging (120 ECTS) ››Track 6: Neural Plasticity (120 ECTS)
Depending on the track chosen, students spend their first and second semsters in Amsterdam / Coimbra / Göttingen / Berlin / Bordeaux. The Board of Education agrees on the first, second or third wish according to the selection ranking and intake capacity of partner institutions.
At the end of the first semester, students choose a subspecialty which defines the partner university(ies) for the 2nd year. It is part of the student’s Personal Training Plan (PTP). Students have up to the end of first year / start of third semester to choose the subject of their Master Thesis. Students then spend their third and fourth semesters in one or two locations: Amsterdam / Coimbra / Göttingen / Berlin / Bordeaux / Laval.
[[Strengths]] ››Scientific education and training with innovative and interdisciplinary brain research methodology. ››Research projects (laboratory rotations) involving experimental work and data analysis. ››Common workshops bringing together students and university representatives. ››Small classes and close contact with faculty staff. ››International learning environment with high-level mobility opportunities. ››Attractive scholarships.
And after? ››On completion of the Master program, students are qualified candidates for different exchange and training PhD programs currently available among the consortium members. ››Graduates will have also the possibility to pursue their studies at PhD level at any of the consortium graduate schools (www.enc network.eu ) or at any other research institution worldwide. ››Graduates interested in starting a career within the business sector, benefit from the industrial network of the consortium.
Candidates must fulfill the following requirements:››Hold a Bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS) or a qualification innatural sciences.››A solid basic knowledge in general cell biology, as well as thebasics of chemistry and biochemistry, physics and math isrequired.
