In this specialisation, you study the neuronal structures and mechanisms of behaviour and memory as well as various neurological and psychiatric disorders. To do this, you learn to develop experimental research based on animal models.
The focus of this Biomedical Sciences: Neurosciences programme offered at University of Antwerp is on research.
Our laboratories work together with outstanding research institutes such as the Institute Born-Bunge for neurosciences. You will spend half of your study time on practical research while doing internships and on writing a dissertation.
In addition, you are offered the opportunity to study abroad for part of the programme.
Graduates often go on to work as researchers at the university or in the biomedical industry.
