Course summary

The Neuroscience MSci is a four-year programme that extends the specialised knowledge provided by the Neuroscience BSc. It allows you to conduct a literature-based research project in year 3 and an extended lab-based research project in year 4. The MSci is designed to prepare you for a career in Neuroscience research. Students can decide in year 2 whether they would like to follow the three-year BSc or the four-year MSci

Your learning

Your teaching and learning will include lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical classes. Most Neuroscience-specific modules throughout your degree are taught in relatively small groups, while some are shared with students on other programmes in larger groups. Practical classes play an important role throughout your studies and prepare you for your research project in the final year.

Assessment

You will normally take a written examination at the end of the academic year in each of your modules; coursework counts for up to 30% of your marks. Coursework prepares you for the final exam and trains you in a variety of writing tasks e.g. essays, lab reports and scientific publications. Some modules are examined by invigilated online tests throughout the year. Your final-year project will involve a written dissertation and an oral presentation.

Careers

Around half of our graduates choose to pursue further studies in Neuroscience or a related Life Science. Some join one of the UCL MSc or PhD programmes, while others obtain PhD scholarships at major research centres worldwide. Among other advantages, the MSci programme is intended to make it easier for graduates to enter PhD programmes at European centres of research excellence.

UCL Neuroscience alumni can be found working in science policy, public policy, publishing, law, journalism, the diplomatic services, the civil service and other high-profile careers outside the classroom or laboratory.
