Student View

"Participating in some observership clinics with my supervisor was extremely helpful for me, and writing the dissertation with all the new things I learned from this experience. Ophthalmology is one of the fastest evolving medical specialties, and dealing with vision was always my dream."

Postgraduate Taught Programmes

Students in Group

The Faculty has over 50 taught graduate programmes which provide you with excellent subject discipline knowledge and applied, clinical and research skills.

By the end of your programme you will also have acquired a range of transferable skills, such as scientific writing, data analysis and entrepreneurship, that make our graduates highly employable. 

In these programmes world-leading researchers teach the complete process of translating discoveries into clinical applications. Our research-led programmes bring together expertise from across the Faculty of Brain Sciences and offer the opportunity to work and train with leading researchers at one of the most highly regarded centres of excellence in brain science in the world.

New programmes for 2015

Our MRes programmes normally extend over 12 months full-time and include taught elements, a significant research component, and training in research techniques to form the basis for doctoral study or a research career.
