Course summary

Introducing BSc Neuroscience:

Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, how the brain works and how cells interact to control behaviour.

Research in neuroscience is aimed at better understanding the structure of the nervous system, how it works, develops, malfunctions, and how it can be manipulated.

Research is aimed at developing more effective treatment of diseases such as stroke, neurodegenerative disease, mental illness, cancer, toxicity and trauma.

Study abroad:

There are opportunities to study abroad in Europe, North America and Asia.

Career opportunities:

Our programmes will appeal to those planning a career in biomedical research or related areas as well as graduate-entry careers in industry, management and the public sector. The broad analytical, scientific and personal skills you gain will equip you for a variety of careers.

Previous graduates have been employed in science and in non-science sectors including teaching, marketing, accountancy and policy research. A large proportion of our graduates choose further study before entering successful academic or industry-based research careers.
