Biomedical Sciences: Neurobiology tracks



Neurobiology is a relative young field of study on the cutting edge of multiple disciplines such as biology, psychology, philosophy and computer science. The Master's programme Neurobiology is for those students who are fascinated by the functioning of the human brain.

There are four specifically designed tracks. All four of them are organised by UvA research groups specialised in exactly these topics, creating an atmosphere of research based education.

  1. Cellular and Network Neuroscience 
  2. Cognitive Neurobiology and Clinical Neurophysiology
  3. Molecular Neurosciences
  4. Psychopharmacology and Pathophysiology

Studying Neurobiology at the University of Amsterdam

The cluster Neurobiology at the University is part of the Master's programme Biomedical Sciences. Consequently, the brain is approached from a biomedical point of view, from the molecule to the mind. The support of several university institutes such as the Swammerdam Institute of Life Sciences (SILS-CNS) and other neurobiological institutes like the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience (NIN) and the AMC guarantee excellent courses and internships.

Degree certificate

Neurobiology is a cluster of the accredited degree programme Biomedical Sciences. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Biomedical Sciences and the title Master of Science (MSc).
