About

Research oriented postgraduate programme that teaches scientific competences in the subspecialty of affective neuroscience, that forms an excellent complement to, or first step towards, a PhD.

Anxiety, depression and related affective disorders are the most prevalent mental health disorders worldwide, but the underlying mechanisms of emotions are also the least understood by modern science. We provide an education in the specialized field of affective neuroscience. Our curriculum offers the latest developments in the field, taught by leading scientists, and fosters the skills you need to become a researcher in affective neuroscience. To graduate you need to make your own contribution to the body of evidence by publishing the results of your own research project. The programme is a combination of distance teaching, scientific research and residential courses. As physical presence is only required for the residential courses, there is no need to move abroad for an extended period of time.
