Neuroscience with a Modern Language (4 years) - University of Manchester

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. **Special Features** **Connect with other languages students** Learn alongside other students taking a variety of language degrees at the University, giving you the opportunity to practice your skills with your fellow students and make new friends. **Study abroad** Placements are available at 25 universities throughout Europe and in China and Japan. **Foundation year available** You can prepare for the full degree course if you do not have the appropriate qualifications for direct entry by undertaking our foundation course first. **Flexibility to transfer between courses** You can transfer away from this course to most of our biological sciences degree courses at the end of your first year or, in some cases, later. You can only transfer onto it if you have completed the required language units in Year 1.
