Study Behavioural & Cognitive Neurosciences
The Research Masters in Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences education programme at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands is mainly focused on training students to become independent researchers. Almost all aspects of neuroscience research are covered and experts are present to teach all aspects of this fascinating field.
Groningen's 2-year Research Masters in Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences consists of three different yet related tracks. While becoming an expert in one specialist track, the integrated education courses and links between these tracks ensure a unique chance of a truly multi-disciplinary training. The education course offers three tracks within BCN:
- Animal and human behaviour
- Cognitive neuroscience and cognitive modelling
- Molecular and clinical neuroscience
While each track contains a number of more traditional modules, emphasis is on active participation in research. Key features of the Research Masters in Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences are a minor and major research project. These are carried out by the students in the first and second year. Students are encouraged to plan at least one research project abroad.
Students who have a broad interest in aspects of the brain, like basis of consciousness, are ideal candidates for the Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences Research Master's degree programme.
