Student reviews of the best schools for Neuroscience in Europe
Official university rankings are helpful for students who won’t settle for any university. Still, there are other criteria you should consider before choosing an institution, like student reviews, for example.
We’ve listed several examples below, but you can check out many other reviews on the individual page of each university. These are available on our websites.
King’s College London
“Excellent professors and relevant module offerings. Excellent student support services (administration, societies, careers, etc.). Also amazing international partnerships and opportunities to study abroad!”
“It's been an excellent learning opportunity! Being in the heart of Stockholm, students from KI have access to the best resources from across the world. My peers from university are some of the smartest people I've met!”
“Many well-informed professors, who do very interesting high-profile research themselves and therefore know what they're talking about. The university is ranked quite high within Europe, which results in many students who come from all over Germany and a big percentage of international students as well! In addition, Heidelberg is quite a vivid student city.”
Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen
“Tübingen is a student city. More than 30% of the inhabitants are students. The University has a long tradition and is famous in Germany and Europe. (Especially in Medicine). The atmosphere is friendly. The community is very international with numerous exchange students visiting every semester.
Since it's not a large city, Tübingen is quite quiet and peaceful. Nevertheless, it doesn't lack cultural and social content because of the high number of students.”
University of Zurich
“The quality of education and the supportive staff at the University of Zurich opened the doors to many incredible opportunities. I am grateful for the study experience I received at this institution.”
