Course summary

Neuroscience is about understanding the most complex organ in the body – the brain. Of the four degree courses taught by the School of Life Sciences, this is our most specialised degree. This course will appeal to those who have a strong interest in how the brain and central nervous system works, neurological diseases and treatments. This course has received interim accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology (RSB), and is pending full accreditation upon graduation of the first cohort. Neuroscience is the discipline that encompasses the study of the brain and nervous system in health and disease. It is an enormous field spanning genomic, molecular, cellular, network and behavioural levels. This degree course is designed for students who wish to develop a greater understanding of the most complex and enigmatic of organs. With the knowledge and practical experience gained on this course, you will be able to develop a career in neuroscience and human health. Careers could include academic research, laboratory services, pharmaceutical drug discovery or clinical trials. Alternatively, you may wish to pursue a career in employment sectors that appreciate the value of a solid understanding of scientific principles, methods and approaches.

Assessment method

Approximately 35% of marks will be assessed by course work throughout the degree. The final degree classification is determined by Year One (10%), Year Two (30%) and your final year (60%).
