MSc and PhD Programmes are by dissertation only and students need to be accepted by a potential supervisor in the Neuroscience Institute. 

The Neuroscience Institute has a very active postgraduate programme. Students are supervised by senior researchers in the institute and the topics for postgraduate research cover a wide range of fields

Students participate in a regular programme of seminars and journal clubs. An MSc is typically completed within two years but students may upgrade to a PhD in their second year if good progress in their research project has been made and if their supervisor supports their request. A PhD is typically completed in three or four years.
