University of Exeter has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The Neuroscience programme explores the neural basis of normal physiological processes and how these are altered by disease. The focus is on research-engaged teaching: we support you to develop the knowledge and skills needed to participate in our research. At the same time, we recognise that you might choose a career outside research. If so, we believe that a firm foundation in scientific knowledge and its methods can unlock opportunities for success across a wide range of occupations.
To develop this skill-set, the first part of the course provides a wide-ranging insight in to how the human body normally works. Neuroscience forms part of this, but a fully sophisticated understanding of neural processes must also encompass an appreciation of the diverse biological processes with which they interact. We study these topics through small-group sessions, lectures and hands-on laboratory practicals.
