A UK 1st or (2.2) Honours degree or equivalent internationally recognised qualification in a life science or related discipline. 2.2 Honours degrees or equivalent internationally recognised qualification will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants with other degrees in the specified subject area together with relevant experience in an area related to neuro-imaging will be considered on an individual basis. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6 in all areas); TOEFL paper-based test 580 (with a minimum of 4.5 in the test of written English); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with a minimum of 20 in reading, writing, listening, speaking and writing); Pearson 58 (with a minimum of 51 in all areas); or BruneELT 65 per cent (with a minimum of 60 per cent in all areas).

Course modules

Modules include: cognitive neuroscience; principles of neuroimaging; practical neuroimaging; visual neuroscience; research project/dissertation.

Assessment methods

3 of the taught modules are assessed entirely by coursework (essays and lab reports). The principles of neuroimaging module is assessed by a combination of essay and multiple-choice examination. The dissertation is based on a student's own research project and includes a review of the relevant literature. It allows students to undertake in-depth study and investigation of their own functional neuroimaging design in an area relevant to them. If desired, the dissertation can be written in the format of a full-length paper as published in neuroimaging and related journals. The module essays are coursework that are submitted towards the end of each module, and reflect a student's learning and investigation into one of the many topics covered by the module.
