The Neuroscience MSci offers an extra year on top of the Neuroscience BSc, during which students extend their specialised knowledge and conduct original research. Entry requirements for both programmes are the same and students can review whether to proceed with the three'year BSc or the four'year MSci during year two.
Year 1: Basic structure and function of nervous system; cellular and molecular biology; chemistry; physiology; genetics; quantitative methods; tutorials. Year 2: Neuroanatomy; cellular neuropsychology; nervous system development; molecular biology; pharmacology; free option (this may be a non'science course). Year 3: Advanced options and research project; most students select from: cognitive neuroscience; developmental, cell and molecular neurobiology; clinically'related neuroscience. Final year: Supervised research project.
