University of Bremen Course Type: Master taught Start Date: October
Location: Bremen, Germany Duration: Full time - 2 Years


The Master of Neurosciences programme is provided by the members of the Center for Cognitive Sciences at the University of Bremen with the participation of the faculties of Physics, Biology/Chemistry, and Human/Public Health Sciences in cooperation with the Bremen hospitals and the Center for Advanced Imaging (CAI). It offers:

  • Qualification as Master of Science (M.Sc.)
  • Teaching in English language
  • Performing excellent research by first-class teaching
  • Specialisation according to personal interests with a broad choice of specialist courses
  • Lab-rotation in various university departments, associated research institutions or abroad
  • A combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills (programming and laboratory animal sciences)
  • Consolidation and application of advanced theoretical and practical knowledge
  • Training of abilities in the field of experimental design and scientific communication


The Neurosciences are among the most fascinating disciplines of the life sciences. They combine concepts and methods from biology, chemistry, physics, informatics, medicine and psychology.Neuroscience research has a tremendous impact on our society, since it deals with the functioning and malfunctioning of the brain – the organ that governs our thinking, feeling and our behaviour. This interdisciplinary Master programme will provide you with a broad background in the neurosciences as well as with the possibility to specialise in one subject.

Equipped with the basics of the life sciences, in combination with fundamental theoretical, methodological and practical knowledge in the various fields of the neurobiological- and cognitive sciences, you will be qualified for a career in a great variety of science-related occupations. You will be educated to become a critically thinking scientist. Not only you will receive extensive research experience qualifying you for PhD studies and an academic career, but the acquired scientific, technical and communication skills will also open a broad spectrum of additional opportunities. There are chances to get a job in the industry, e.g. pharmaceutical branch, medical technology, robotics, industrial engineering, biotechnology and neuro-imaging.
