Webinar 9.11.2016: Study Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Helsinki, Finland!

Would you like to truly make a difference in the life of all the people around you and make the living environment better? Tackle the challenges by studying Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Helsinki in Finland.

Urbanization is a global phenomenon that determines the future of our societies. Most of the key challenges of contemporary societies are encountered and hopefully addressed in cities. The magnitude of such challenges implies that no single field of research or profession can tackle them alone. Urban development requires an integrated approach. To this end, two prominent Finnish universities have joined forces in this unique and interdisciplinary Master's programme.

Webinar: 22.11.2016 Study Neuroscience at the University of Helsinki, Finland!

We are conscious, we sense, we feel and act because of our brain. The brain coordinates and is affected by bodily functions, and it integrates the information about the outside world carried by our senses – it is the most central player in the physiology of the whole body. Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of science that studies the brain and the entire nervous system at different levels of organization, from genes and molecules to nerve cells and networks; and beyond. The focus of interest in a neuroscientist's research may lie in understanding the neurobiological bases of behaviour, analysing the functional roles of a single molecule, or in developing novel treatments to neurological disorders or sensory deficits.

The Master's Programme in Neuroscience at the University of Helsinki provides students with the opportunity to gain knowledge and skills in a scientifically vibrant international environment. You will be taught by scientists who will provide you with a wide spectrum of opportunities for practical training and for becoming integrated into the stimulating neuroscience community. When you graduate, you will master essentials of neuroscience and have deeper knowledge and skills in subfields of your choice.
