Learn the concepts and intricacies of neuroscience, and put them into practice with your own original research.

Our intercalated BSc in Neuroscience gives students already taking a medical degree the chance to achieve an additional degree in a specialist field in just one year.

This challenging and rewarding programme, led by internationally recognised researchers, is aimed at students with a keen interest in the field. We pride ourselves on training the next generation of medical neuroscientists.

You’ll study the anatomical, physiological, chemical and immunological processes of the normal nervous system, how these are altered in specific disease states, and the latest approaches to treatment. You’ll develop a critical understanding of complex concepts in neuroscience – particularly those relevant to the medical field and unmet clinical needs.

Following training in research methodology and practical skills, you’ll undertake an original research project – a chance to demonstrate your understanding of experimental design and data acquisition and analysis. You’ll be encouraged to present your research at conferences, and have chances to co-author publications.

TESTIMONIAL - The intercalated degree has given me the opportunity to carry out laboratory experiments, which is something I hadn’t experienced as part of my medical training. It has stimulated my interest in research and has made me more likely to consider carrying out laboratory research whilst being a doctor. Furthermore, having an intercalated degree will strengthen my CV, meaning I am more likely to get my desired jobs in my foundation years and beyond. - Dafydd Plant, Neuroscience (2018)
