Postgraduate, leading to a Master of Research (MRes)
- Start date: 30 August 2021
- End date: 30 September 2022
Information about all programmes from previous years of entry can be found in the archive.
One year full time
- Undergraduate degree (typically 2.1 or higher) in a science-related subject (e.g. neuroscience, chemistry, physics, biology, psychology or computer science). If you studied your first degree outside the UK, see the international entry requirements.
- Candidates with other suitable and equivalent qualifications such as relevant work experience or research accomplishments will also be considered.
- English language proficiency. See English language tests and qualifications.
The qualifications listed are indicative minimum requirements for entry. Some academic Schools will ask applicants to achieve significantly higher marks than the minimum. Obtaining the listed entry requirements will not guarantee you a place, as the University considers all aspects of every application including, where applicable, the writing sample, personal statement, and supporting documents.
There are two deadlines: 20 November 2020 and 19 February 2021. Applications received after February 19 may be accepted if places are still available, but applicants should contact the programme coordinator first for advice.
- CV or résumé
- personal statement, including names of 3 potential supervisors (500 words maximum)
- two letters of recommendation
- academic transcripts and degree certificates
- evidence of English language proficiency (required if English is not your first language).
Potential supervisors may vary from year to year. MRes neuroscience students are typically supervised by academic staff within the Cellular and Developmental Research Group. However, academic staff in other research groups may supervise students in certain instances. Questions about suitability of potential supervisors should be directed in the first instance to the programme coordinator, Stefan Pulver (firstname.lastname@example.org).
