Graduate Student Handbook
The Department of Medical Neuroscience offers MSc and PhD programs. Students in the MSc program can, with the recommendation of their supervisory committee, transfer to the PhD program. This is supposed to happen no later than the 4th term of study.
Students can also be part of the neuroscience program and, in this case, are considered to be “anatomy/neuroscience” students. To learn more about the neuroscience program consult the Graduate Studies Calendar.
The MSc program in either anatomy & neurobiology or anatomy/neuroscience takes at least 2 years. The PhD typically takes 4-5 years.
NOTE: This handbook is designed to provide helpful guidance to students. The regulations and procedures of the University and the Faculty of Graduate Studies are listed in the Graduate Studies Calendar.
