The program offers an integrated approach to understanding the workings of the brain and the relationship between mental and neural processes. By cutting across traditional disciplinary borders, it will provide its students a strong footing in both psychological and neural sciences.

To really understand how the mind and the brain operate in health and disease, there is a need for scientists who are not limited by traditional boundaries between disciplines, who are capable of working across levels of analysis, and able to understand and make use of the huge and complex datasets that we generate. This is exactly what this exciting new program brings

Dr Yannis Paloyelis, Director and Admissions Tutor of BSc Neuroscience and Psychology

The newly tailored course will place an emphasis on employing a broad range of state-of-the-art educational approaches, including active learning scenarios, and is accredited by the British Psychological Society.

The launch of BSc Neuroscience and Psychology further demonstrates that the IoPPN is one of the most exciting places in the world to study the mind and the brain. The programme will equip the next generation of scientists with the skills and knowledge they need to understand the brain as a complex and dynamic system, and how this fundamentally relates to who we are and why we differ from each other. I look forward to seeing where this journey will lead our new students

Professor Mark Richardson, Vice Dean (Neuroscience)

Offered by one of the world’s leading centres for neuroscience research, BSc Neuroscience and Psychology will enable students to understand the interplay between mental and neural processes. The course will focus on psychological sciences and the exciting, growing areas of cognitive/systems/computational neuroscience.
