    The master Neuroscience and Cognition gives you insight in the principles of the field normal and pathological brain function and delivers a new generation of multidisciplinary neuroscientists.

    The master in Neuroscience & Cognition covers the full width of research topics in the field and is taught by researchers based at Utrecht University or the University Medical Center Utrecht. A unique setting is created in Utrecht in which the participating research groups are organized in Neuroscience and Cognition Utrecht. The emphasis of the Utrecht master in Neuroscience & Cognition is on hands-on experience, although a selection of elective courses allows for a thorough theoretical basis. Over 200 principal investigators participate in the program and offer internships and supervision. The second internship is often taken outside Utrecht, usually within an international collaboration of one of the principal investigators, allowing easy access to top institutes all over the world. The principal researchers involved in the master program are experts in a large variety of advanced techniques. To advise and guide students there are two track coordinators. The wide range of options for internships, thesis topics and elective courses allows each student to design a personalized study path matching individual interests, abilities and ambition.
