JCSMR convenes two postgraduate coursework programs in neuroscience. The programs are designed for domestic or international students who wish to enhance their skills and gain a post-graduate qualification at an Australian university. Study programs are individually designed to complement prior study and develop advanced knowledge and skills.

Master of Neuroscience

The ANU Master of Neuroscience is an intensive program of graduate coursework providing a pathway for science graduates to acquire new skills, or to extend and renew their understanding of neuroscience principles.

This program is designed to give you both theoretical and practical knowledge of the modern concepts in neuroscience and the methodologies employed. You will be taught by leading Australian neuroscientists and have opportunities to gain first-hand experience of neuroscience research.

Master of Neuroscience (Advanced)

The ANU Master of Neuroscience (Advanced) is a two-year program that consists of one year coursework plus a year of independent research. The coursework component will provide you with an advanced knowledge of current concepts in neuroscience, and will support those who wish to move into a neuroscience field from related areas of science and psychology but do not have a significant neuroscience background.

Your independent research will be required to develop expertise in a nominated area through independent research and completion of a dissertation.
