This course is about the relationship between brain function and mechanisms that underpin behaviour. Computational neuroscience uses data to construct models of brain function. Cognitive neuroscience and human imaging relate function to its underlying neural substrate.
The course includes an extended research project which gives you the chance to carry out an in-depth imaging study. The computational and analytical skills you’ll learn are great preparation for a PhD. The course takes students from both life sciences and the physical sciences and engineering. Appropriate training is given to ensure all students can master the required skills and complete the course successfully.
- You need to have successfully completed at least three years of your current Medicine course before the start date of the intercalated masters degree
- You need to have a three year average GPA of 4.0 out of 5.0 (where your course is graded differently we will consider equivalent grades)
- If your GPA (or equivalent) is lower, we may still consider your application subject to successfully completing an interview
- If you are an international student, you must also meet the course english language requirements as specified in the prospectus.
As an external student, please ensure you are eligible to be released for an intercalated masters degree by your university. Timelines and processes will vary by university.
Most of our courses will accept applications up to May each year for intercalating students. This will vary depending on your circumstances and the capacity on our courses, therefore the sooner you apply, the sooner you could secure a place. You should also factor in any internal deadlines or processes with your university to confirm that you can be released to take an intercalated masters degree.
