Master of Neuroscience

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Master of Neuroscience program is suited to both international and domestic students who wish to shift their career focus to neuroscience. The objective of the program is to train highly qualified individuals for independent research and teaching careers in neuroscience. This program will provide an excellent theoretical and practical grounding for those wishing to pursue PhD studies. Students who do the Master's program could also pursue careers in government and private companies if they do not wish to continue in research. The program is coordinated by the Queensland Brain Institute and the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences, but also spans many other exceptionally strong centres for neuroscience research at the University of Queensland. The Master of Neuroscience program runs for three semesters (#24 option); students with a Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc(Hons)) or equivalent can do a two semester (#16) option. In each semester, students undertake a single compulsory lecture course comprising five contact hours per week and a laboratory-based practical rotation that occupies the remaining time.
