Neuroscience - University of Central Lancashire

Do you want to understand the cause and treatment for neurological disorders and diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Multiple Sclerosis? Neuroscience is a truly modern and multidisciplinary subject which seeks to understand the most complex organ system in the body, the nervous system. Our degree is one of only a handful of courses that offers a multidisciplinary approach including pharmacy, biomedical sciences and psychology; you’ll learn how the brain and nervous system work to alter behaviour, perception, mood and memory. You’ll be able to tailor your degree by studying the modules which appeal to you the most and which ultimately you’ll specialise in, giving you a well-rounded background to further your future career in the Neuroscience field. This degree could lead to a career in science teaching, science writing, private research and lab work. There is an option of a placement module and many students take this up and work either in labs, rehabilitation centres, or brain rehabilitation. Neuroscience graduates may wish to continue studying for a further degree, pursue a career in the pharmaceutical industry or hospitals, or train to become a science teacher. You can engage further in research through a paid internship, participate in research conferences, research publications and research grants or work as a part-time research assistant. Our current students regularly publish themselves or become members of the editorial panel to ‘Diffusion’, UCLan’s own undergraduate research journal.
