Masters in Research (MRes) Neuroscience
This highly specialized course provides research-led masters level training in neuroscience. The course covers physiological and pharmacological aspects of neuroscience in combination with behavioral, bioimaging, electrophysiological and molecular approaches.
The majority of the course is a 6-8 month research project carried out in a research laboratory on a topic related to neuroscience. SIPBS has strong track record in neuroscience research, and research topics on offer will reflect the breadth of research being carried out by academic staff. The research project will provide training in research methods and approaches, and will provide the opportunity for students to contribute to research teams.
To support the research project, students will also take several taught classes. These will cover a range of research skills, including academic writing, statistics, project management, and ethics. Key techniques are developed through laboratory classes and specialized knowledge is developed through an advanced class in neuroscience. Students also choose an additional class from the following areas:
- In vivo biology
- Molecular Biology
Teaching and Assessment
The majority of the course is assessed through the completion of a thesis that is examined by individually appointed examiners. The taught classes are delivered through lectures, tutorials and hands-on practical sessions. Assessment of taught classes is through written assignments and practical reports.
Graduates from this course will be ideally qualified to obtain positions in the pharmaceutical industry. Some students may wish to continue studies for MPhil or PhD.
MRes: 12 months full-time; 24 months part-time
Standard Faculty of Science tuition fees apply.
First- or second-class Honours degree in a biological or chemical discipline. Evidence of laboratory-based research experience and aptitude is also expected.
