What will I learn?

Studying neuroscience at the University of Leeds covers all major areas of neuroscience, from the molecular to the clinical/pathological, studying questions such as “what is consciousness?” and “how do we form and store memories?”The programme has been praised by external examiners: “The course provides students with a comprehensive range of specialist knowledge and skills along with generic skills. It provides an excellent foundation for those who wish to pursue a career in neuroscience but also supplies the skills essential for the world of work.”Neuroscience studies the brain and the nerves that make up the nervous system. The brain controls all bodily activities, ranging from heart rate and sexual function to emotion, learning and memory. In fact, the brain is what makes us human.In our undergraduate degree, you’ll study the disorders of the nervous system which underlie many current public health problems, such as neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s for example) and chronic pain.**Course highlights:**- A wide range of research-led optional modules including cellular cardiology, introduction to toxicology, chemotherapy and introduction to genetics.- Practical work provides extensive hands-on experience in labs, such as making single neuronal recordings in snail brains.- Carry out an independant research project under the supervision of a field-leading academic, further developing the transferable skills that will set you apart in the graduate job market.
