How does our brain impact our behaviour and cognitive functions? How does our nervous system work?

    The ANU Master of Neuroscience will give you both theoretical and practical knowledge of the modern concepts in neuroscience and methodologies employed to answer these questions and more.

    Based in the Eccles Institute of Neuroscience at the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australia’s national medical research institute, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art, modern facilities, and some of the country’s leading scientists in the field.

    This Advanced program incorporates a research project and thesis.


    Our postgraduate neuroscience programs pave the way for further studies in neuroscience and related fields, such as a PhD.

    A Master of Neuroscience will also provide you with the skills to find employment in the biomedical sciences sector, including in clinical research, with pharmaceutical companies and in policy development.
