Students are well-supported and fully integrated into what is one of the UK’s largest neuroscience communities.
Its state-of-the-art facilities, programme of talks by world-leading neuroscientists, public engagement events, student activities, and biennial Bristol-Cardiff Young Neuroscientists’ Day all enhance the postgrad experience in BN.
The MSc Molecular Neuroscience course aims to provide training in the neurosciences as they relate to the regulation of the physiological function and behaviour of the organism.
The course is run through the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of the University of Bristol, and is based in the new facilities of the Henry Wellcome Laboratories for Integrative Neuroscience and Endocrinology (LINE). The course builds upon the research strengths of the University in areas of neuroscience, molecular biology, neuroendocrinology, neurodegeneration and behaviour.
The course is of interest to those with a medical training who wish to diversify into research, and science graduates who wish to further develop their knowledge and skills before embarking on a doctoral research programme.
The School of Experimental Psychology offers the opportunity to study one of two courses in order to obtain a Masters degree:
Both courses provide students with a theoretical and practical grounding in psychological research techniques, thus equipping the successful student to go on to a PhD programme in Experimental Psychology or related disciplines. Alternatively, completion of these courses can lead to the application of advanced psychological knowledge and research skills elsewhere, such as in industry or education.
Neuroscience and Neuropharmacology - amongst other key areas of biomedical science - are offered as units in the MSc / Dip / Cert in Biomedical Sciences Research. This course is therefore of interest to students who wish to specialise in neuroscience at postgraduate level.
The course is full-time and runs for one year. It focuses on experimental science and practical experience of research techniques.
With staff from all Schools in the Medical Sciences Building contributing to the design and teaching of the program, this course offers an exceptional opportunity to study a wide range of topics, taught by people actively engaged in cutting-edge biomedical research.
The MSc in Stem Cells and Regeneration is an innovative postgraduate course taught via on-line distance learning. Introduced in 2009, it provides students with knowledge and understanding of the highly topical and exciting field of stem cell biology and regeneration, including, for example, applications in neurodegeneration, peripheral neuropathy and spinal injury.
This course, based upon a new ground breaking academic partnership between Bristol University and Frenchay Hospital (North Bristol NHS Trust), delivers the underpinning knowledge to support candidates in the development of specialist practice in clinical neuropsychology.
Its content provides the 'Knowledge and Skills' component of the British Psychological Society (BPS) syllabus for those who want to undertake the Qualification in Clinical Neuropsychology (QiCN formally known as the Practitioner Full Membership Qualification, PFMQ).
Please note that the course is only open to candidates meeting very specific eligibility criteria. Please check full details and any updates and deadlines in the postgraduate prospectus, and via course leaders in the School of Experimental Psychology.
