Master’s

AIM

Our Master’s course is research focused and aims to provide students with the technical and intellectual skills needed to understand modern brain science. These skills can prepare them for further work in brain science but are also easily transferable to any context that requires critical thinking, familiarity with data science, or the effective communication of ideas.

 

STRUCTURE

Over the two-year course, students complete a selection of courses from two streams: methodological and conceptual. This coursework is concentrated in the first year, with students primarily working on their individual research project in the second year. 

 

Students further develop their research knowledge and experience through a series of lab rotations, the Institute seminar, and through weekly research exchanges. At the seminar, experts from around the world are invited to give a talk and students are prepared to present their own ideas too. At the research exchange, students and faculty discuss current research ideas and new experimental results. 

 

ENVIRONMENT

We believe that students learn best in a friendly and supportive environment where students can be responsible for their own work. We have the opportunity to welcome people from all over the world and with a wide range of academic backgrounds, helping us build a diverse social and intellectual environment. 

 

 

PhD

AIM

The purpose of our PhD program is to provide people the skills needed to become an independent researcher, whether in academia or in industry. We aim to develop methodological and technical expertise while also exposing students to different ways of thinking about brain science. This foundation then allows them to plan and undertake robust original research on their chosen topic. 

 

STRUCTURE

The PhD takes an average of four years and starts with a period of classes designed to develop methodological and conceptual rigour. Students then focus on their research projects to build up a set of results that advance knowledge in their chosen area. The results of these experiments are written up as a thesis for appraisal. It is normal for students to also publish several peer-reviewed papers in this period.
