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 (i.e. application deadline was 15 January).

* Module 1 Basic Neurobiology: a set of lectures introduces the basic elements of neurobiology to students of different academic backgrounds.
* Module 2 Working with Data: trains students in good scientific practice, basic statistics and presentation of their research.
* Module 3 Individual Focus: encourages students to develop their individual research focus.
* Module 4 Neuropathophysiology: The Changing Brain: the general aim is to provide a conceptual interface between the topics of cellular neurosciences (module 1) and clinical neurosciences (module 5).
* Module 5 Advanced Problems and Topics in Neuroscience: based on specific examples from recently published or classical work, students deepen their understanding and knowledge gained in the core modules Basic Neurobiology, Neuropathophysiology and Clinical Neuroscience.
* Module 6 Clinical Neuroscience: based on the material covered previously (Basic Neurobiology/ Neuropathophysiology), this module is heavily devoted to the clinical manifestations of pathophysiological changes in the nervous system.
* Module 7 Academic Writing and Publishing: prepares students for the successful completion of their thesis and future publications.
* Module 8 Experimental Design: prepares for the experimental side of the Master thesis.
* Module 9 Thesis: the entire 4th semester is dedicated to the thesis, prompting students to integrate gained knowledge and skills necessary for a future in science.
