I chose this university because of the feedback I had received from previous students about the MSc Neuroscience programme as well as King’s outstanding reputation in both teaching and scientific research; I have never regretted my choice.
The MSc programme is well organised and gives you a solid grounding in the fundamentals of neuroscience as well as knowledge of recent developments within the field. We cover a broad range of topics from minute molecular pathways to gross anatomical anomalies, and apply them to clinical problems. Although the course is somewhat demanding, the interesting content and the immense help and support offered by the teaching staff makes it worthwhile.
What attracted me to the programme was the ability to specialise in the region of neuroscience which most interested me. Lectures are given by experts in their respective fields who are involved in cutting-edge research, and we are provided with up-to-date information on what is known, something which is important in this rapidly progressing field! The highlight of the MSc for me would have to be the extensive research project. It offers an opportunity to work alongside these well renowned supervisors and to experience what it is like to work in a dynamic research lab. The experience holds you in good stead to pursue a career in research.
Being based at the heart of London gives you the opportunity to experience a wide range of cultures and is a great place to meet new people and socialise. I would recommend King’s to any student pursuing an MSc in Neuroscience.
