What our students say

I would recommend this programme as it elevates you from the crowd. I am now doing a PhD in Germany, which I don’t think I would have been able to do without the Master's.

Michael Lever, MSc Molecular Neuroscience

I was attracted by the fact that there was an opportunity to do a practical project, as I knew this would provide great experience of the lab environment.
