If you apply for one of the programmes listed on the right, you should have already been in contact with your potential future supervisor and have agreed on a research proposal. Otherwise please go to the MSc by Research in Integrative Neuroscience website. This is a programme that will match you up with supervisors and there is no need for a research proposal at this point.
In order to be considered for the programme we require a relevant undergraduate degree with a UK 2:1 or higher result, or its international equivalent.
You must also have been formally interviewed by the School you wish to enter. Applicants can be interviewed by video-conferencing or Skype.
Supporting documentation must be uploaded to support your application. You should have this documentation ready before you start the process. If you do not upload your documents this could delay the application process.
Before making your application, you must make contact with a potential supervisor to discuss your research proposal. Further information on making a research degree application can be found below.
All applicants must meet our general entry and language requirements.

If you are not an EU, EEA or Swiss national, you may need an Academic Technology Approval Scheme clearance certificate in order to study this programme.
We actively collaborate with clinical neuroscientists as well as computational neuroscientists working in neuroinformatics.
The Edinburgh neuroscience community maintains the highest standards of research training and a long tradition of research publication in international journals.
The division has several interdisciplinary research groups studying the degeneration and repair of neurons and the mechanisms that underlie human neurological diseases.
We normally have about 20 PhD students.
Students are assigned to the relevant research group. Each student's progress is monitored by a thesis committee convened from members within these groups. Students participate in a weekly graduate seminar programme, presenting their analysis of original research papers assigned by an expert member of the Edinburgh neuroscience community.
All students are encouraged to present their findings at national and international conferences and to publish their findings in international journals, in advance of submission of their PhD theses for examination.
The CNR has state-of-the-art laboratories in the Chancellor’s Building.
