About

Your knowledge will build from studying core units in years one and two to studying selected, in-depth courses in your final year.

For example, second-year in the Neuroscience programme from University of Bristol units explore many aspects of neuroscience, including the neurophysiology of the central nervous system; the pharmacology of drugs that affect the nervous system; and the techniques that have enabled advances in understanding the nervous system.

Final-year units are run at the forefront of current research, taking units such as synaptic plasticity or brain and behaviour, as well as studying specialised topics such as neuropsychiatric diseases. You will also spend a total of 30 days on a research project.

Practical teaching is currently enhanced with our innovative online dynamic lab manual, eBiolabs.
