Course Description

The MSc Human Neuroscience programme aims to provide you with the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct research in most areas of human neuroscience and the relationship between brain and behaviour. The Department?s cutting-edge research informs a wide range of topics, including anatomical, physiological, cognitive and computational neuroscience. The courses also reflect the academic staff?s outstanding methodological expertise, from computational to physiological methods, including Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). Seven course units provide systematic coverage of material essential for understanding the relationships between brain and behaviour, and the key physiological and statistical methods important for deciphering these. A variety of teaching methods are used, including lectures, tutorials and seminars. Students gain `hands-on? experience through the research project and practical workshops. There will be in-depth discussions and evaluation of timely and controversial issues in different areas of human neuroscience. These will all help to foster the development of your own research interests. The Psychology Department has a dynamic research community, including researchers in a variety of fields and an active population of PhD students and post-doctoral scientists. The Department has an international reputation for the excellence of its research and teaching. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise ranked the Department among the top 10 in the UK. It was also awarded 24 out of 24 points in the most recent Teaching Quality Assessment. The Department is also one of the best equipped Psychology departments in the country and was the first in the UK to host a research-dedicated MRI scanner. Royal Holloway, University of London, is home to a vibrant, cosmopolitan community of 7,700 students from over 120 countries. Our beautiful 135 acre campus is located in Surrey, just 40 minutes into central London by train, and Heathrow Airport is only seven miles away. Students enjoy a safe, supportive environment with high quality student accommodation, dedicated recreational and support services, including a range of excellent indoor and outdoor sports facilities, a thriving cultural scene, and a broad portfolio of bursaries and scholarships. Around a quarter of our student population comes from outside the UK, creating a stimulating mix of diverse backgrounds and cultures. International students enjoy a range of dedicated services, including an International Student Support Office, Health Centre, Counselling Service, and an International Student Careers Advisor. At the beginning of each academic year, the College arranges an Orientation Programme. This is designed to introduce international students to the UK, the College and the local area and covers a range of practical matters about living and studying here. To apply online visit: https:apply.embark.comgradroyalholloway92 Applications are encouraged from students with first degrees in subjects allied to the psychological, biological or physical sciences, as well as those with degrees in subjects related to mathematics and statistics. The course is appropriate for students wishing to enter the fields of neuroscience andor psychology from other disciplines, so applications are welcome from those who have no background in these areas. You are encouraged to contact the Programme Director prior to making applications and if you would like any further information.
