Neuroscience & Mental Health

Studying a Masters in Neuroscience & Mental Health at the University of Strathclyde, you’ll be learning at an award-winning academic institution. An award-winning institution, we were named Times Higher Education University of the Year 2019 – the only university to win the award twice.

  • study how the nervous system works from molecules to cells to functional networks and high-order cognition
  • develop an understanding of in vivo models, plus cutting-edge techniques and technologies used in neuroscience research and drug development
  • gain the ability to conduct independent research and also to work as part of a team, with an appreciation of other disciplines’ contribution to drug discovery, development and delivery for neurological and mental health conditions

What you’ll learn

During this Masters course you’ll:

  • develop an understanding of in vivo models, plus cutting-edge techniques and technologies used in neuroscience research and drug development
  • gain the ability to conduct independent research and also to work as part of a team, with an appreciation of other disciplines’ contribution to drug discovery, development and delivery for neurological and mental health conditions
  • gain confidence in transferable skills and be effective independent lifelong learners
  • gain insight into entrepreneurship and commercialisation within the pharmaceutical industry

Learn from leading academics

The course is taught by leading neuroscience academics from Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences, recognised as one of the leading departments of its kind in the UK. You’ll therefore be taught by researchers working at the forefront of areas such as optogenetics, sensory signal processing, neuronal network interconnectivity, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and neuroimmunology.

Several modules on the course are also taught by our experts in drug development & delivery. This will give you perspectives on developing and delivering drugs to the brain.

The Institute has state-of-the-art facilities including electrophysiology, high-resolution imaging, rodent behavioural testing and in vivo optogenetic manipulation, as well as custom-built electrophysiology simulation software to support learning of the mechanisms that underpin nerve cell function.
