Course description

Due to the ongoing impact of the global pandemic we have had to evaluate all of our courses to ensure that we adhere to Government guidelines to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and students. This means that as we work through these changes the modules, delivery methods and assessments shown, including those shown for future years, are subject to change.

This postgraduate degree will provide you with advanced training in research methods in animal behaviour, equipping you with the research and professional skills required for a research career.

The Department of Neuroscience, Psychology and Behaviour has particular research strengths in:

  • Cellular and molecular neurobiology
  • Cognitive and behavioural sciences
  • Perception and sensory processing
  • Health and psychological wellbeing

You will be encouraged to undertake a research project in one of these areas.
