About

The one year MSc in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford is interdisciplinary in content and completely inter-departmental in structure, since at least nine departments or research centres contribute to it each year. 

Overview

Providing both theoretical and practical training, including two research laboratory placements, the course is modular and therefore flexible with respect to participants' backgrounds and interests.

The Neuroscience course at the University of Oxford takes an integrated approach to neuroscience and provides skills training in a wide range of experimental and theoretical methods intended to enable you to ask questions and tackle problems that transcend the traditional disciplines from which neuroscience has evolved.

Supervision

The allocation of graduate supervision for this course is the responsibility of the Medical Sciences Division and it is not always possible to accommodate the preferences of incoming graduate students to work with a particular member of staff. Under exceptional circumstances a supervisor may be found outside the Medical Sciences Division.

Graduate destinations

Others have taken science-related jobs, including science journalism and science communication, or become management consultants in the biotechnology sector.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The first term provides a start to neuroscience and research methods, while the second and third terms combine advanced taught courses, essay writing and two laboratory rotations (research projects). 
  • The course concludes the following September with an oral examination.
  • Each of the MSc research projects lasts for about 16 weeks and is selected from a very extensive list of approved abstracts.
