The course covers molecular, cell and developmental biology of auditory and visual systems. Advanced imaging and behavioural analysis focus on information processing: from sensory transduction to the central nervous system and behaviour. You�ll also study animal models of sensory deficits and the development of therapeutic treatments for hearing loss and blindness. Graduates with skills in stem cell and regenerative medicine are in demand. Your degree will prepare you for a career in research in academia or industry, or in a clinical-related field. Our graduates are working all over the world � from the UK to China, India and the USA � and over half go on to doctoral study.
You�ll need a 1st Class Honours degree in a biomedical-related subject. Students whose 1st language is not English require an overall IELTS grade of 7.0 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component, or TOEFL 100 with 24 in each component, or equivalent.
Core modules: literature review; practical research project; analysis of current science; ethics and public understanding. Optional modules: integrated mammalian biology; practical developmental genetics; neuroscience techniques; sensory neuroscience; developmental neurobiology; computational neuroscience.
Assessment is by formal examinations, coursework assignments, debates, poster presentations and a dissertation.
