DO YOU HAVE THE BRAIN AND MIND FOR HUMAN NEUROSCIENCE?

THE MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMME IN HUMAN NEUROSCIENCE EDUCATES FUTURE EXPERTS TO UNDERSTAND AND MEASURE HUMAN BRAIN FUNCTION AND PERFORMANCE

Students of the new Master’s Degree Programme will get a deep understanding of human brain function. They will learn noninvasive imaging methods to investigate brain activation and structure as well as behavioural methods to measure human cognition and performance. The Programme gives a strong foundation to work as a human neuroscience expert in various industries requiring knowledge and skills to tackle the complex brain-behaviour issues. Graduates are expected to find jobs, for example, in drug development, in companies developing novel health and game products, and in customised marketing research. The Programme also gives a strong basis to continue studies towards a PhD.

The extent of the Master’s Degree Programme is 120 ECTS to be completed in two years. The studies consist of brain imaging methods (20 ECTS), clinical neuroscience (25 ECTS), behavioural methods to measure human cognition, perception, consciousness and performance (15 ECTS), other studies (20 ECTS) and a Master’s thesis (40 ECTS). All programme parts contain lectures, group work, independent studies and practical exercises. The Programme requires a basic understanding of key neuroscience concepts. Depending on previous study history, this may require completion of introductory neuroscience courses during the first semester.

The letter of motivation is a very important document in the application process. Please prepare it carefully and describe the following:

  • your plans and goals; why human neuroscience?
  • the relevancy of your study history including previous studies in neuroscience
  • knowledge and studies in statistics and/or mathematics
  • skills in programming and experience in using data analysis tools
  • English skills; scientific writing

Motivation letter should be less 2000 characters (including spaces) long. Please note that the motivation letter may be checked for plagiarism.

Applications meeting the general requirements will be ranked based on the following components:

  • previous studies and their relevancy for the programme
  • previous academic success
  • motivation letter

Highest-ranking applicants will be invited for an interview (Skype).

The interview performance will be separately scored.
