Medical Neurosciences focuses on translational research. The main objective is to bridge the gap between successes at the bench and currently - less than satisfactory treatment at the bedside. To do so, we integrate basic laboratory research and the clinic in terms of faculty, students, course content and infrastructure.
Our educational approach is based on in depth classroom teaching in small groups and carefully guided practical training. The program covers the breadth of neuroscience from basic neurobiology to cognition and neurovascular diseases. Within this spectrum, we encourage students to develop their own research focus and career goals.
MSc graduates have the theoretical background, practical skills and faculty contact necessary for continued research in PhD projects. In the PhD program, these qualifications are further enhanced and combined with rigorous research work ranging from molecule to man.
The Master program is structured in 9 modules. The complete two-year program accounts for 120 ECTS credits. The next run will start in October 2013 (i.e. application deadline was 15 January 2013).

Students are expected to finance their studies and stay in Berlin by their own means. However, there are a number of scholarship opportunities available. Granted by the Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure, the program awards a merit based stipend in the amount of 550 to the top 5 students of the first semester. Furthermore, previous students have been funded through DAAD scholarships, educational grants in their home country, or scholarships awarded by industry.
The program has been accredited in 2008 by the Hannover based accreditation agency ZEvA.
