    Course Summary

    The University of Sussex’s Medical Neuroscience BSc program is designed to give students a deep understanding of neuroscience in the clinical context. Students will learn directly from researchers who specialise in neural development, learning, memory and intelligence. These experts work with the Sussex Research Programme, which is itself closely linked with the Brighton and Sussex Medical School.

    As a student of the program, you would also benefit from the university’s guaranteed interview scheme. You can learn more about that here.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This is a three year program, with an additional placement year. Alternatively, it can be taken as a 4 year program, granting an MSc degree.

    Year 1:

    In your first year of the University of Sussex’s Medical Neuroscience BSc degree, you’ll study a series of core modules. These will give you the background you need to build upon with later, more advanced modules in physiology, biology, research methods and the life sciences more generally. You will also be able to select a few optional elective modules.

    Year 2:

    Your second year in the program will cover genetics, developmental biology, and several aspects of advanced neurology. Again, you’ll have access to elective modules as well.

    Year 3:

    In your third year, you will not have any required core modules. Instead you’ll select your entire course load from specialist electives. These will allow you to explore your own interests to become an expert in one or more sub-fields of Medical Neuroscience.

    Placement (optional):

    For ether one term or one full year, you may be able to work in a paid placement role with one of Sussex’s partner organisations, such as the NHS, Pfizer or AkzoNobel.

    Study Abroad (optional):

    You may also compete for one of the program’s study abroad slots, gaining highly marketable international experience.

    Learning & Teaching

    You will experience a wide range of learning and teaching styles over the course of this program. Most modules will involve a mix of lectures, seminars, tutorials and group work.

    There will also be a great deal of laboratory sessions and independent study. The year of professional placement will also be an important learning experience, and you will experience a very different learning environment if you opt to study abroad.

    Career Possiblities

    Many recent graduates of the University of Sussex’s Medical Neuroscience degree program have found rewarding, challenging careers as NHS laboratory assistants, clinical trial operations interns, and analytical scientists.

    However, many seek out different career paths. This program equips its graduates with many highly transferrable skills, which can open doors into various roles in the pharmaceutical or biotech industries, the field of health science or a position as a researcher in neuropsychology or neuropharmacology.
