Neuroscience is the study of the brain and nervous system and how they work to generate behaviour, perception, movement, thought, memory and other key functions. These studies call on a wide range of knowledge and experimental techniques. New molecular approaches are advancing our knowledge of membrane receptor structure and giving remarkable progress towards understanding neural development. There have also been major advances in our understanding of the biology of higher brain function and the pathogenesis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
In the final year of this four year course a major research project is undertaken, culminating in the award of an undergraduate masters qualification. Ours is one of the few undergraduate masters in neuroscience in the UK.
This programme has been accredited by the Society of Biology. Accreditation is awarded to programmes that demonstrate the highest standards in the biosciences and provide graduates with the skills for academic and industry careers.
The University runs several open days per year, in which Life Sciences take part.
The Faculty of Life Sciences also operates Faculty/campus tours which are available most days. These are with a student ambassador who will can tell you all about the Faculty and life at The University of Manchester. It may also be possible to meet with admissions staff (subject to staff availability). These tours are open to anybody thinking of applying to us for any of the Life Sciences. Family and friends are welcome too.To book, please contact the Faculty of Life Sciences Admissions Office on tel +44 (0)161 275 5032 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £20,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
