Course summary

**Course overview**- Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Want to understand the cause and treatment for neurological disorders and diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's and multiple sclerosis? Neuroscience is a truly modern and multidisciplinary subject which seeks to understand the most complex organ in the body; the nervous system. Our degree covers pharmacy and biomedical sciences as well as psychology. This is one of only a handful of courses that offers this multidisciplinary approach and you’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work to alter behaviour, perception, mood and memory. You’ll be able to tailor your degree by studying the modules which appeal to you the most and which ultimately you will specialise in, giving you a well-rounded background to further your future career in the Neuroscience field.- This degree could lead to a career in science teaching, science writing, private research and lab work. There is an option of a placement module and many students take this up and work either in labs, rehabilitation centres, or brain rehabilitation. Neuroscience graduates may wish to continue studying for a further degree, pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry or hospitals, or train to become a science teacher. - You can engage further in research through a paid internship, participate in research conferences, research publications and research grants or work as a part-time research assistant. Our current students regularly publish themselves or become members of the editorial panel to ‘Diffusion’, UCLan’s own undergraduate research journal.**Why study with us**- The foundation year will provide you with an interesting and stimulating grounding in science.- The course will enable you to gain key practical skills in our modern, spacious and well-equipped laboratory facilities.- You’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work to alter behaviour, perception, mood and memory.
