Study Developmental Neurobiology
Welcome from Professor Sarah Guthrie, Deputy Head, Division of Neuroscience (Education)
If you are considering following a bioscience programme at King’s College London, there are lots of options to choose from.
At the Department of Developmental Neurobiology, principal investigators participate in teaching on a range of BSc, MSci and PhD programmes. The groups in the department also provide hands-on research projects for final year undergraduate students as well as for vacation studentships.
Three year BSc and four year MSci programmes include neuroscience, anatomy, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology and biomedical sciences.
Our teaching is led by experts, based in King's world-class research centres, and reflects state-of-the-art knowledge, techniques and models.
Year one of all our BSc and MSc programmes involves a common set of modules, allowing students to switch programmes later if they wish.
Throughout the second and third years students diversify and specialise, with the opportunity to perform a substantial laboratory project in year three. Examples of topics for project work are cellular and developmental neuroscience, neurodegeneration and neuropsychology. For students who undertake an MSci degree, a further research project can also be taken in the fourth year. These exciting projects can be based in a range of research centres including the Department of Developmental Neurobiology, Wolfson CARD or labs at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at Denmark Hill.
During your time here you will acquire an extensive skills set, including numeracy, analytical, problem-solving and communication skills, which will enhance your employability and success in the jobs market or in applying for further study.
