EDUCATION

If you are a student interested in obtaining a Masters degree or Ph.D./Dr.rer.nat degree in Neuroscience, our students are usually enrolled in one of the following, outstanding programs:

  • Bonn International Graduate School (BIGS) of Neuroscience: BIGS Neuroscience is committed to providing a top-level, internationally competitive program in the rapidly developing field of general neuroscience. This interdisciplinary school includes scientists from the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Medicine, the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases in the Helmholtz Association and the Research Institute Caesar in the Max Planck Association.
  • International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Brain and Behavior: The first of its kind in uniting Universities and Max Planck Institutions on both sides of the Atlantic, the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Brain and Behavior offers a competitive world-class Ph.D. training and research program. It is topically focused, and addresses how sensory information is encoded in neural circuits and is transformed ultimately to behavior.
  • The Master of Science in Neurosciences at the University of Bonn is a two-year research oriented, international study program. The curriculum is taught entirely in English and divided into modules, combining courses, lectures, seminars and laboratory work.
  • SciMed Doctoral College (Medical Students): Supports Medical Students in performing a high-quality experimental doctoral thesis.
  • Else-Kröner-Fresenius Doctoral College (Medical Students): For support of experimental doctoral theses in the topic of neuroimmunology.
