The topic in this Neuroscience (Hons) programme from University of Dundee will give you an understanding of how biomedical innovations are explored and developed from initial concept to their application.
You will learn key theories - from molecular level to full body systems - to understand the field as a whole.
Your first two years will cover genetics, cell biology, biological organisation, molecular mechanisms and processes. You’ll develop practical skills, including laboratory skills, data analysis, and how to design and run experiments. This will prepare you for carrying out projects later on in your course.
You can pick modules that interest you and also transfer to a different life sciences degree if you choose the relevant modules.
Our course curriculum is shaped by the work of our world-leading researchers to make sure you’re learning the latest advances, as well as gaining an understanding of the fundamentals of the field.
Lab sessions throughout your degree will help integrate your knowledge and practical skills, as well as develop strong transferable skills, both in and out of the lab.
We use a variety of teaching methods, including:
- lab practicals
- computer-based learning
- media / video exercises
- field excursions where appropriate
Specific career paths for neuroscience graduates include academic research in universities institutes and the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Opportunities also exist in medical/scientific information, the media, and publishing.
A degree in Neuroscience, in common with many other Life Science degrees, can also provide a qualification for graduate entry to Medicine or Dentistry.
