The Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci) in Neuroscience is a one-year qualification which builds on an undergraduate degree. The PGDipSci can be undertaken in two ways. One option consists of four postgraduate papers, including NEUR 490 (60 points) in which you will conduct your own research and write about it. Alternatively, you can opt to take NEUR 480 (40 points), which has a smaller research project component, and choose four other postgraduate papers.
The postgraduate papers that you take will depend on your background and your interests.
If you choose the NEUR 490 option, then the PGDipSci may be used for direct entry to a PhD or a one-year Master of Science (MSc). If you choose NEUR 480 then the PGDipSci may be used for direct entry to a one-year MSc.
If you have a degree with a major other than Neuroscience, you may be eligible for Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci). Admission under these circumstances decided by the Deputy Director.
