About

The Neurosciences programme from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam provides students with the knowledge, skills and insight they need to operate as a professional within the field of neurosciences.

Overview

Brain disorders, in particular neurodegenerative diseases and mental illnesses, are among the most prevalent and debilitating diseases of our time. They are typically caused by the interplay of environmental factors and genetic variation in multiple genes, which is currently being mapped by major international initiatives. Future brain research should therefore focus on integrative projects as a next step in characterizing this complex environmental/genetic interplay and in revealing how it translates into brain function and/or disease. 

To succeed, we need a new generation of neuroscientists capable of integrating information from genes and proteins to synapses, and from networks up to complex brain function and dysfunction. Are you ready for the challenge?

The Master’s in Neurosciences is a two-year, full-time programme offered by Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Teaching comprises lectures, research seminars, work groups, demonstrations, lab visits and practicals. 

Career prospects 

  • The vast majority (70%) of graduates of the Master’s programme in Neurosciences go on to join a PhD programme either at VU Amsterdam or at another academic institute in the Netherlands or abroad.
  • The master degree gives access to a number of PhD degree programmes at VU Amsterdam or elsewhere.

Promotion alumni sessions Master’s day
