MSc Brain and Mind Sciences

  • DeadlineStudy Details:

    MSc 1 year full-time

Course Description

This international programme is offered by three of Europe’s most prestigious centres of research and teaching in cognitive studies and neuroscience: UCL, Université Pierre et Marie Curie (part of Sorbonne University), and Ecole Normale Supérieure. Students design an individualised programme of study, exploring multidisciplinary perspectives.

You will develop an understanding of the cognitive sciences and neurosciences, and how mechanisms operating at the molecular, cell, network and system level affect normal brain function. They gain a working knowledge of modern methods for scientific and clinical investigation of the human nervous system, along with exposure to leading-edge research.

Entry Requirements

A minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor’s degree in neuroscience or related biological science (e.g. physiology, psychology, biochemistry); or a medical degree from a UK university, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. If you have not studied basic cellular neuroscience in your undergraduate degree, you will be required to do an introductory module during the first year of studies at UCL.

Applicants must be able to follow a postgraduate curriculum in both the French and English languages as the programme involves a year of study in London and a year of study in Paris.

Please note: You must have successfully completed the UCL year (year one) in order to progress to year two in Paris.

Programme Funding

UCL offers a range of financial awards aimed at assisting both prospective and current students with their studies.

Student Destinations

You will design your own curriculum in both London and Paris, tailoring your studies to their own area of interest. The individualised nature of the programme attracts intellectually mature students who are confident enough to define their own research path. The opportunity to undertake original research in two centres of excellence makes the successful student more attractive to potential PhD supervisors, as evidenced by the fact that 90% of graduating students go on to full-time doctoral studies.

Employability

Students will graduate with a Master’s from UCL (awarded at the end Year 1), and an international university diploma (Master’s level) from Sorbonne/ENS (on completion of Year 2). Upon successful completion of the MSc programme, students will be able to embark upon a successful career in their chosen field of research.
