A European Master in Neuroscience: advanced course and research training.

The Neurasmus program is a full-time Neuroscience study program offering a unique interdisciplinary and integrated approach of normal brain functions and diseases. It strongly emphasizes training in cutting-edge techniques in all major topics of brain research, from molecules to cognition. The Neurasmus curricula are completely embedded in international-oriented local Master programs of the partner universities. Each program features among the best and most reputed national programs in Neuroscience.

The Neurasmus program is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree developed under the Key Action 1 of the Erasmus+ program. Action 1 fosters cooperation between higher education institutions and academic staff in Europe and Third Countries with a view to creating poles of excellence and providing highly trained human resources. Joint programs of outstanding academic quality are designed and implemented by a consortium of European universities from at least three different countries. Consortia may also include universities from other parts of the world. Programs include obligatory study and research periods, in at least two universities, and award recognized double or multiple degrees.

Curriculum overview

The Neurasmus Consortium offers a diversity of expertise that covers all fields of modern neuroscience: from neurogenetics and neurogenomics, cellular and molecular neurobiology, neurophysiology, neurophotonics, physiology and pathophysiology of neural plasticity, to medical neurosciences. All partners are sites of excellence in neuroscience and have a proven track record of close collaboration.


Personnal training plan

During the two-year Master Program, the students will have to attend at least two of the partner institutions in two different European countries.
