This international programme in Brain and Mind Sciences from the University College London (UCL) is offered by three of Europe's most prestigious centres of research and teaching in cognitive studies and neuroscience: UCL, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (part of Sorbonne University), and Ecole Normale Supérieure. 


Students design an individualised Brain and Mind Sciences programme from the University College London (UCL) of study, exploring multidisciplinary perspectives.

Students develop an understanding of the cognitive sciences and neurosciences, and how mechanisms operating at the molecular, cell, network and system level affect normal brain function. They gain a working knowledge of modern methods for scientific and clinical investigation of the human nervous system, along with exposure to leading-edge research.


Students will graduate with a Master's from UCL (awarded at the end Year 1), and an international university diploma (Master's level) from UPMC/ENS (on completion of Year 2).

Upon successful completion of the two-year joint MSc programme, students will be able to embark upon a successful career in their chosen field of research into the expression of human behaviour and its biological substrate.
