The Neuroscience and Neuroimaging programme of Aarhus University is the first of its kind in Denmark and combines subjects from the Technical, Natural, and Life Sciences with the aim of producing graduates with state-of-the-art theoretical, technical, and clinical knowledge within neuroscience and neuroimaging.


Key facts

The Neuroscience and Neuroimaging programme of Aarhus University offers a unique educational environment not seen anywhere in the world. In addition, the study program includes courses in basic neuroscience from the molecular level to the clinical setting describing the different neurological diseases, the treatment of as well as the study of these including animal models used in neuroscience and neuroimaging research.

Study profile

The SDC Master’s programme in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging is developed by active researchers from both Denmark and China – uniting the most recent research, modern technology, and problem-oriented learning methods. This programme is based in China.

The unique combination of advanced imaging techniques and a broad knowledge in basic and clinical neuroscience topics enables the students to join the growing field of neuroscience and neuroimaging as well as fill the rising demand for graduates specialized in neuroimaging due to the increasing worldwide availability of high-resolution scanners.

Through the inclusion of top researchers as guest lectures, the students will be introduced to the latest advances in neuroscience research and techniques.

You will obtain knowledge in:

  • Molecular, cellular, and clinical neuroscience
  • Different neuroimaging technologies including, ultra sound, X-ray/CT, PET/SPECT, and fMRI
  • Animal and other model systems used in neuroscience
  • Electrophysiology and electroencephalography
  • Advanced uses of neuroimaging modalities
  • Hardware design for fMRI and PET scanners
  • Cognitive neuroscience

Career opportunities

Graduates will have a unique education and cross-cultural insight. They will be obvious candidates for industrial R & D positions, academic research and/or clinical positions at neuro-oriented hospital departments or join neuroscience PhD schools at universities in Denmark and abroad. Currently almost three-quarters of graduates from this programme are enrolled in or have graduated a PhD programme. The MSc degree programme in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging targets students who would like to combine Neuroscience and modern advanced technology to create the new technologies and forms of therapy that will help the growing number of patients with brain disorders.
