Course Summary

NPP offers unrivalled opportunities for PhD research in all aspects of neuroscience, generating 18% of England’s contribution to the world’s most highly cited publications. Projects are offered by researchers who are among the leaders of their fields, using the most modern techniques to address important problems of basic and clinical neuroscience. UCL offers unrivalled opportunities for PhD research in all aspects of neuroscience. Subjects studied range from the molecular biology of neuronal proteins, through cellular neuroscience, to the behaviour of sensory and motor systems and brain imaging. Neuroscience research is carried out in all of UCL's biomedical departments, by researchers who are among the leaders of their fields, using the most modern techniques to address important problems of basic and clinical neuroscience.

The success of our PhD programmes is based on the very high-calibre students we recruit and the exceptional training opportunities embedded in the truly multidisciplinary neuroscience subject area at UCL. Our research training is widely viewed as making an outstanding contribution to UCL's PhD opportunities. The department has a uniquely broad portfolio of research laboratories, where students may acquire a diverse range of techniques to use in their PhD project. This breadth promotes interdisciplinary research in a manner not achievable by a PhD programme with a narrower range. Many graduates will take up positions in academia. Others are employed as senior scientists or medical writers, teachers or as editors with publishers.
