Neuroscience is a highly multidisciplinary field of science, and the Master’s Programme in Neuroscience links teachers and researchers especially within the biosciences and biomedicine. Our courses are organized and thesis projects conducted mainly on two campuses of the University of Helsinki:  Viikki (including the Department of Biosciences, the Neuroscience Center, the Institute of Biotechnology and the Faculty of Pharmacy), and Meilahti (including Medicum, Clinicum and the Helsinki University Central Hospital). In addition to neuroscience, you will be able to select courses from related programmes, including e.g. those of Genetics and Molecular Biosciences, Translational Medicine, or Psychology.

As we also collaborate with the Aalto University Master’s Programme in Human Neuroscience and –Technology, you will be able to include their relevant courses into your degree. Many courses and training events organized by the Doctoral Programmes in the field are also open to Master’s students.

Through the Network of European Schools in Neuroscience (NENS), our students get unique possibilities to participate in courses and symposia organized by other European Neuroscience Programmes.
