Course summary

Programme overview

The programme provides intensive training in the neurosciences as they relate to the physiologic function and behaviour of the organism. It builds on the broad research strengths of recognised scientists, particularly in basic and clinical neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, neuroendocrinology, behaviour, neurodegeneration and stress. Guest lecturers from other universities bring their specialist and advanced knowledge to the programme.

Throughout the programme, basic principles will be taught and illustrated in the context of various brain diseases, including psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders. A practical and a research project will give you valuable experience in experimental neuroscience, while tutorials and presentations will also help to develop your communication skills.

The MSc will appeal to graduates looking to progress to PhD study as well as those with medical training who want to diversify into research. You could also move on to a career in industry, the health service, science communication or clinical trials coordination.

Although part-time study is available, this needs to be discussed with the programme director.

Careers

The MSc in Molecular Neuroscience can open up a number of different career paths. Many graduates of the programme have secured PhD studentships here in the UK or in other parts of the world, including the US, Australia and Germany. This often leads to a career in research or academia (eg as a research assistant or research associate, teaching fellow, lecturer).

Other graduates have gone on to a career in industry, scientific writing or clinical trial coordination. Some graduates have gone into medicine studies after completing the programme. Staff are available to discuss prospective career pathways with students who undertake this MSc.
