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.

Tracks

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. Molecular Neurosciences
  2. Physiology of Synapses and Networks 
  3. Psychopharmacology and Pathophysiology
  4. Cognitive Neurobiology and Clinical Neurophysiology

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 Amsterdam UMC 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).

Highly recognised

In 2018 the Master's programmes in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Amsterdam received a final rating of 'Good' in the reaccreditation concluded by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This rating means the programmes 'consistently surpass the standard quality level'.
