About this course

Study the brain's development, structure and function, and understand the processes underlying neurological disorders. You'll explore subjects as diverse as biochemistry, neurophysiology, and neural circuits controlling behaviour. This Masters degree will open the door to scientific or clinically-related postgraduate research. It can also lead to a career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

You'll build on the foundation of biomedical sciences in year 1, and increase your neuroscience specialisation each year after that. This culminates in year 4 when you'll complete an individual research project to prepare you for a career in neuroscience.

Your knowledge of fundamental sciences will help you master this interdisciplinary subject. Your work will be supported by lectures and seminars on the latest research topics and techniques, delivered by leading researchers. 

You'll study in the Life Sciences building, a state-of-the-art laboratory, teaching and research space. It's designed to support cross-disciplinary work in biological sciences and related disciplines.
