A Master of Science (MSc) can be completed by full time students in either one or two years.
The one year MSc may be right for you if you have already completed four years of Neuroscience study including a research component, and have a Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc(Hons)), or a Bachelor of Science (BSc) and a Postgraduate Diploma in Science (PGDipSci). During your Masters year, you would conduct your own research and write about it in a Master's thesis. To enter the one year MSc you also need suitable grades, experience conducting research, and agreement from a Neuroscientist to supervise your research.
The two year MSc may be right for you if you have studied Neuroscience for three years. The first year is similar to the fourth year of a BSc(Hons) majoring in Neuroscience or a PGDipSci in Neuroscience. It consists of postgraduate papers in Neuroscience including a paper that prepares you to do research. In your second year, you would conduct your own research and write a Master's thesis. To be accepted into the two year MSc you also need suitable grades and agreement from a Neuroscientist to supervise your research.
