Course summary

The Neuroscience programme explores the neural basis of normal physiological processes and how these are altered by disease. The focus is on research-engaged teaching: we support you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to participate in our research. At the same time, we recognise that you might choose a career outside research. If so, we believe that a firm foundation in scientific knowledge and its methods can unlock opportunities for success across a wide range of occupations.We build upon this foundation to study neuroscience itself in more detail. Content in the second year develops your understanding of key neuroscientific principles and techniques, whilst giving the flexibility to start identifying the areas of greatest personal interest. In the final year, you can choose modules that reflect these interests, working closely with leading researchers and, with your tutor’s support, tailoring your degree to match your specific career ambitions.A distinctive feature of our course is the opportunity for you to undertake extended periods of research. Many students undertake summer placements, and all students complete a specialised dissertation in their final year. About half of our students also choose to spend an optional third year working in industry or in a university laboratory, either in the UK or abroad. This provides an exceptional opportunity to participate in real research, whilst at the same time enhancing your employability and gaining the first-hand experience which is essential to making informed career decisions.
