Neuroscience MSc

Neuroscience aims to understand how the brain works and is one of only a few areas of scientific exploration where fundamental discoveries are yet to take place. UCL has one of the largest, most dynamic and exceptional  Neuroscience communities in the world. This master's in Neuroscience at UCL draws upon this world leading community to provide students with an up to date picture of cutting edge Neuroscience research. Neuroscience, as a subject, is as broad as Science itself. In the one year of the course, we provide students with an excellent grasp of most of the key areas of Neuroscience. The majority of our students take up PhD positions in Neuroscience research both in the UK and abroad and completion of this course equips them for an excellent future scientific career.
