Our programme

Our programme is full-time for twelve months, beginning in September and ending in August the following year. Successful MSc and Diploma candidates graduate in November/December.

Semester 1 provides a taught component in the first 12 weeks.  Themed weeks allow students to learn from researchers from a wide range of neuroscience areas, and a choice of four elective courses offers the opportunity to focus your learning to one specialism. You'll also choose from a range of projects offered (or propose your own project) to begin in Semester 2.

In Semester 2,  you can choose to do either two 12-week projects or one long 24-week project.
