UCL is the leading neuroscience institution in Europe, and students benefit greatly from a vast reservoir of expertise.
In addition to providing experience and participation in cutting-edge neuroscience, delivered by internationally recognised researchers, the Neuroscience MSc programme offered at the University College London (UCL) generates several transferable skills, notably advanced laboratory research methods, data analysis, computer literacy, oral presentation, critical appraisal of specialised literature, and time management.
The majority (more than 80%) of our graduates take up PhD positions in neuroscience research, including some who stay on at UCL.
The MSc in Neurosciences provides an introduction to a career in neuroscience. Around 80% of our students progress to a PhD and then onto careers in academia, industry and other allied biomedical professions. The remainder go into careers in the fields of healthcare, education and commercial scientific research.
