researcher at microscopePostgraduates can pursue their interests in neuroscience in one of two ways:completing a postgraduate taught course - a Master in Science (MSc); or undertaking postgraduate research - either a Master in Research (MRes) or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

Our postgraduate students come from a wide variety of backgrounds.  Many come straight from an undergraduate degree, which may be in neuroscience but also include a diverse range of other science-based courses, such as biochemistry, physics, physiology, genetics, or pharmacology.

Others may be mature students returning to academia after time raising a family or in the world of employment. 

Clinicians, too, often take the opportunity to complete a PhD at some time in their career. 

Whatever your background, a wide range of postgraduate options are offered through BN, all of which provide high calibre training, carried out by experts in their field, arming you with the knowledge and skills you need to engage in today’s world of neuroscience.

Please see the  postgraduate prospectus for general advice, entry requirments, and full information on applications and studentships.
