Training and Education
The Department and affiliated Research Centres offer excellent facilities for Postgraduate Training. There are currently 60 Postgraduate students in the Department who participate in regular series of student research talks, journal clubs as well as the ALS and CNMD Seminar Series. Many of our Postgraduate students have gone on to pursue exciting international careers in neuroscience. Our academic staff are able to devote a significant proportion of their time to supervision and training of research students, and are available to support and guide you in undertaking your research, developing research skills and techniques, and in preparation of your written thesis. The Department also offers support to Postgraduate students by means of its Graduate Tutor and with a regular appraisal and reporting system. A particular attraction to our students is the facility to choose optional topics from the Institute of Neurology's MSc courses, seminars and workshops. The Department plays a leading role in the delivery of the MSc and Short Courses in Neuromuscular Disease.
