Neuroscience teaching and training: An overview

Bristol provides superb teaching and training in neuroscience, with the facilities and expertise required to prepare high calibre neuroscientists for the future.

Both undergraduate taught courses (BSc) and postgraduate taught courses (MSc) in neuroscience are on offer, either exclusively for neuroscience or with neuroscience options as components of the course. 

Postgraduate students can also undertake research programmes in order to pursue their interest in the brain, either through a Master of Research, or by carrying out a neuroscience PhD.

Bristol Neuroscience also ensures students are well supported and encouraged - activites such as an undergraduate Bristol Student Society for Neuroscience, and full integration into the events and activities run by BN, all enhance the student experience at Bristol.
