Our BSc Neuroscience with a Modern Language course will enable you to develop your language skills while studying how the brain and nervous system work to generate behaviour, perception, movement, thought, memory and other key functions. New molecular approaches are using a wide range of knowledge and experimental techniques to advance our knowledge of membrane receptor structure and make remarkable progress towards understanding neural development. There have also been major advances in our understanding of the biology of higher brain function and the pathogenesis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. You will study a range of topics during the course, including biology, pharmacology, motor systems and more, with the opportunity to choose optional units in particular areas of interest. We offer French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Mandarin for the language component of the course, which includes a year abroad on a research placement. Our course has Advanced Accreditation from the Royal Society of Biology , which recognises academic excellence in the biosciences and highlights degrees that educate the research and development leaders and innovators of the future.
