Graduate Studies in Neuroscience

Oxford University is at the forefront of one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century

- deciphering how the brain works. For the first time in the history of neuroscience all of the building blocks ranging from tool development and animal models to experimental medicine are sufficiently well developed to permit a real leap forward in our understanding of the brain, from showing how individual neurons acquire their specific properties and assemble into complex interactive circuits, to showing how defects in these circuits lead to neurological and psychiatric illness and perhaps even how brains generate consciousness.

Oxford Neuroscience

The breadth of research in Neuroscience in Oxford offers unrivalled training opportunities for Postgraduate students. Please explore your particular interests by reading about the major research themes that provide an overview of the range of Neuroscience research. You can also access information about the departments that undertake Neuroscience research.

Study options in Neuroscience

Wellcome Trust Doctoral Programme in Neuroscience

This is a 1+3 year programme. Students take the one year MSc in Neuroscience in the first year and then proceed to a 3 year DPhil in Neuroscience in any area of Neuroscience within the Oxford network of laboratories and approved supervisors. There are FIVE Wellcome Trust awards each year. These awards cover fees and a generous stipend for four years. For the doctoral project the award also provides research expenses.

All applications must be received by the deadline of 12 noon Friday 11 January 2019.

MSc in Neuroscience

The MSc is a full one-year course (from the end of September to mid September the following year), carried out within the Division of Medical Sciences, which provides a broad training in Neuroscience. Students must study within the three main branches (molecular, cellular and systems), learning both theory and practical research techniques. Applicants with a strong scientific background, but not necessarily in Neuroscience, are encouraged to apply. There are approximately 20 places available on this course. Students on this programme have been successful in obtaining a variety of scholarships.

All applications must be received by the deadline of 12 noon UK time Friday 11 January 2019.
